Remembering those Enfield 303 jungle carbines I used to have back in the day. Owned several if them bon and off in the eighties. Nice ones too.But the darn things Really kicked and holding a zero on them was very hard. I really wonder how many if them really were used in Second World War.If I was a Tommy fighting Japanese in Burma I would rather have a Mk 4 Enfield rather than the Mk5 Jungle Carbine.

I don't think hardly any were used in the world war, heard they were used more in the Malaysian conflict. I always read that the wandering zero was a made up problem by the troops because the rifle was unpopular due to the harsh recoil. I have one but I have never got around to shooting it. Like so many of my guns unfortunately.

Me and you both... I came down sick and lost all of mine in the pawn shops... lost everything but the house, literally. I think that is why I am so aggressive in collecting now, to make up for the lost collection.
