I came across a No4 MkI receiver and barrel a few months ago. The fun fact here is that it was a Santa Fe Jungle Carbine. The ears for the rear sight were missing and being that I have a Parker Hale scope mount,this became a perfect candidate for a major overhaul. The front sight was missing but I was able to thread the end of the barrel and install a muzzle brake. I live in Arizona and this should be a perfect brush gun.

I like this rifle alot...

That is one beautiful sporting Enfield! Liking that laminate wood grain. Is that stock a Boyd's? I also use the 5 round magazines on a few of my sporters, very sleek set-up. Nice job man.

Thank you.
The stock is in fact from Boyd's.
I have two Santa Fe five round mags for this guy but,I found a new five round mag from UKMAGS.com to accentuate the lines in the stock.

The five rounder that you show with the rifle, is that the one from UKMAGS?

Look to your front, mark your target when it comes!

Yes it is. The price was a bit hefty. I think it was close to fifty bucks including shipping...

I didn't think it would look this nice with that stumpy barrel but,when I screwed the muzzle brake on. I had a change of heart.

That is a good looking sporter. Like the laminate wood.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!
