High bidder on this funky thing. Don't know why I bid or what I'm gonna do with it. Maybe a jungle carbine project? I'm gonna need a magazine, if anyone has a spare for sale.

Enfield

Now to make some quick cash so the wife doesn't find out...

:&y:

Oh crap, I'm addicted!

It's of no use. The wife i am sure already knows about it. Be sure to buy her a dozen long-stem roses and take her to somewhere romantic..... Save yourself the grief in trying to hide it.

Best of luck,

I really think I can get away with it. She doesn't know about the rifle yet. I did tell her about the MAS 36 bayonet, though. Now she thinks I'm looking to get a MAS 36. Threw her off the scent completely.

The way I see it, I have 3 options:

1. give it to my brother-in-law for Christmas (cheapest option)

2. Buy the new original-type wood set + a few parts ($40/wood, $35/other stuff)

3. Buy the jungle carbine wood & convert it($80/wood + ? ), then sell funky stock on ebay.

Either way, I'm gonna need a magazine. Anyone got one for sale?

I almost bid on that (for sympathy)

You should have. That was my max bid. I was hoping someone would snipe it out from under me......

It arrived Thursday & not too bad, condition-wise. Looked closely at the markings. Its a Fazakerly, 1950 dated & serial #'d with electro-pencil on receiver, barrel & bolt. Has a micrometer rear sight & #2 bolt head. NO importer stamps, so this must've been around awhile. Not sure if they import-mark barrelled actions....

Anyhoo, the hunt continues for the stock set, front & rear bands, sling swivel, etc.

Update.

Gave it to my brother-in-law for Christmas. Was hardly the cheapest option, but he told me he will keep it forever. Here's a pic I took with my new digital camera. Still experimenting, so bear with me...
