    picked up jungle carbine

    its been a very long time since i could post about a new gun i picked up a jan -1945 jungle carbine last week for 375.00 out the door most things are matching but the rear sight is marked n67 which means it was made by singer sewing machine don't know if some were made that way from the factory or not most parts are stamped with the letter f which stands for royal ordanance factory. the bore is very strong and bright but the rear sight is missing the screw for the micro adjusting . i have found on line both rear sights one with the f stamp and one with the n67 stamping wish i could find just the screw it would be much cheaper i would think. the rear sight is for a jungle carbine because it only goes to 800 yards. i can not post pictures on this website but if you would like to see it i posted it on gunboards under lee enfields i am gramps51 over there and if some one can post those pictures here that would be great . neil merry christmas

    Cool, real McCoy - not one of those importer modified No.4s. I like them, although I admit I never fired mine (too pretty to shoot (LOL).
    Congrats, happy shooting!

    Sounds like a good price. One of my favorite models from the family tree.

    If you remove the hand guard there should be some lightening cuts to make the gun lighter in overall weight!

    I think over there (and a lot of other forums), people are afraid if they post something, some of the wise azzes will pick it apart.

    I've got a copy of Ian Skennerton's .303 Rifle, No. 5 Mk I, and on page 14 he says the screw thread on the No. 4 sight was not the same as on the No. 5 sight. So you probably would want to stick with the No. 5 screw (or a complete sight).

    I'm partial to Jungle Carbines, got a BSA and a fake made by Golden State Arms from a No. 4. It was also somewhat sporterized, and it's been a long-term project of mine to make it look more jen-ew-wine. Not to fool anyone, what it is, is clearly stamped on an exposed section of the barrel.
