WTK: Value of Enfield .303 Carbine Parts Kit (Partial)

I have what I believe to be most of a parts kit for a "Santa Fe Jungle Carbine MK1" as can be seen in the photos below. I picked this up as part of a bigger parts lot, and just decided to try to sell to someone both better versed in this type, and would enjoy the build. My intent is to put these items on the marketplace, but I would like to get an idea of market value beforehand. Any thoughts you might have would be graciously appreciated. Please PM or email (a.davidson.iv@gmail.com) with any knowledge about this partial kit. Thanks in advance--Art

Art,

No idea on value, but I'm interested. Do you have a pic of the left side of the receiver?

*edit*
Just noticed that it's a No. III

Saw this on the web, doesn't help with value, but I though it was interesting.

The Gibbs/Navy Arms No. 7 Jungle can fetch $400 or so when complete, sometimes close to $500 in the Ishapore 2A .308 configuration. The parts as shown would be quite a bit less I would think. Wood used to be available, not so sure anymore.

numrich had #4 wood re-moded into JC type for $150 per set, but that has been gone for 3-5 years.

Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine.


The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."
