I used to own an enfield no4 in .303 and have been kicking myself for selling it ever since
pros: 10 round capacity, reliable, good balistics, cheap
cons: .303 ammo is hard to find (here at least), IMO the action isnt as fast as a mauser´s.
yes id say they are as good as either the mosins or the mausers

What do you want it for? Hunting? Plinking? History? Self defense? Your reason(s) will make a difference.I think Im gonna go up there this evening and see if they are still there.
if they are I will write down what specs I can for each of them.
but one more question. would I be better off buying one of those cheap 30-06 deer rifle in a box combos for about the same price?? 300-400$
I'm not an expert but I think the Enfield would be ok for hunting. I'd rather have a Marlin 336 .30-30. Lighter and very dependable. Ammo is MUCH easier and cheaper to find.plinking and hunting.
I already have my shotgun for home defense :thumb:
. A nice piece of history- the British held an empire together with the Enfield/.303.
Yep I agree.yes I remember when I was a child, going to my best friends house and his dad had a gun cabinet in the living room and had three of them sitting in there.
I remeber always staring at them thinking "that gun could blow stuff up" :
you gotta admit those old time mausers,mn,and enfields sure are some classy looking guns.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee-EnfieldThe current world record for aimed bolt-action fire was set in 1914 by a musketry instructor in the British Army — Sergeant Instructor Snoxall — who placed 38 rounds into a 12" target at 300 yards (270 m) in one minute.
I own a No. 1 Mk. III*.does anyone own one of these I have seen them for pretty cheap and was thinking of buying one.
are they as good as the mosins and mausers?
