    They (Santa Fe/Golden State Arms and others) made a lot of cut down copies back in the good old days, so use care if you want the real deal.

    Buckshot, im OK with the Golden State Arms version of this rifle. Im not as concerned as much about authenticity (Enfield NO5) as i am with look (Enfield No4 shortened) and it need to be a carbine. Roger.

    OK! I think I may have one in the safe. I just don't know what safe it might be in.
    SO! I need to find out the value of them and if it is worth digging to that safe to find it. LOL

    It might take several day to get in there to it. I have two trips scheduled this week to the VA in Houston.

    Any way enough of my BS for now.
    My description of it in 2012.
    "all the parts have matching numbers, hand guard, stock, front lower stock, bolt, mag,etc. everything has a number on it that matches. the metal finish is very nice with some wear here and there. there are some very small repairs on the stock.the bore is bright and shiney, great lands. it apears to have been carried a lot, but not shot much. it is an original unmolested ( not refurbished)1945 B.S.A. ( M/47C)"
    That would have been the last time I looked at it. So it has been sitting in the safe for 5 years.
    Who know what it looks like now.

    Ron

    Found a picture of it from 2012 ( I think) before it went into the safe.
