Just wanted to throw this one up here. I found this beauty up at Camp Merrill. I don't know much about Enfields but this one is a 1943 Longbranch with a two groove barrel and great bore. I threw an S&K mount on it, weaver rings, El Paso K2.5/post reticle and ordered the riser from Numrich. I like it. It does have some pitting and an extra tapped hole on the receiver :mad: but it shoots great. Still need to fit the riser to the stock a bit and stain it to match but for now, she's done.

Only with irons when I first got her. Shot some Radway surplus I believe. It shot very tight groups actually, kinda what made me decide to go this route. Need to get it out and zero it.

That scope looks great on there. Usually mounting a scope to a milsurp with a commercial mount looks cobbled, your rig looks like it grew there.

Camp Merrill? They sell guns there? Or did some poor SAS sapper lose his rifle while trying to keep up with the Army guys at Ranger School?

Man, I wish they did. You can come up on family day and fire blanks out of what's in the arms room. Always a good time. I got a call about the rifle from a buddy stationed at camp. Needed some quick money, I had it.
