Well, saw one on Saturday afternoon. The flash hidder looked really ugly, sort of like an old blunderbuss.

It's an Ishapore 2A MK III Enfield in 7.62x51 (308) built in 1965. It has been modified to look like a Jungle Carbine.

So ugly I took it home with some Nato ammo that came with it.

Anyone shoot, have one of these or any 7.62 Enfield ... ??? :smile: Mike

The one Ishapore that I've shot was one of the one's that Gibbs or Navy Arms cut down into a "tanker" model. It didn't have the faux jungle carbine bits thereon.

It shot well enough, but the rear sight could not be lowered sufficiently to zero at at 100 yards. We ended up filing the rear sight blade lower and re-notching it. We also needed to adjust the magazine's feed lips slightly to get reliable feeding.

The resulting rifle is crude, but shoots well enough, offers stripper-clip reloading, and has the smooth and short bolt flick that the Enfield action provides.
