    This little collection of firearms that got left for me. :) My Grandfather was in the Canadian Military during the Korean war. If I could get the firearm names and model numbers I would be able to find out the 'other' stuff myself. :bowdown:Thanks pros!

    Thanks for the reply Clean97GTI I have another couple questions?

    1) What is a 'Ishapore' Enfield? As in, is this a seperate manufacturing company or something along these lines?
    2) Which would be the best for a range shooter?
    3) Are magazines still available for the Enfields?

    I anwsered question number 1 myself
    1)
    While the early rifles of this type where manufactured in England and were made to use the "British 0.303" caliber, This one is the later version manufacture by the british in a plant in Ishapore India (this one was made in 1967) and were set-up to use the popular 7.62mm Nato caliber (0.308 winchester will work as well).


    My other questions still stand

    Top one looks a lot like a Mosin-Nagant.

    Last one is definately a .30 Carbine but must have had a new stock put on it.

    1. Mosin Nagant 91/10 or 91/30
    2. Enfield #5 Jungle Carbine. (very nice)
    3. Enfield #4 Mk1
    4. Agree with RRTX, looks like an M1 Carbine with an aftermarket stock.

    All of these would be fun range guns. as for magazines you mean clips for the Enfields, you can still find all kinds of parts for them online.

    A very nice collection you have there :)

    Edit: After looking at #4 more closely by zooming, I think what you have there isn't an M1 with aftermarket, but in fact an M2 Carbine with factory stock and extended magazine. very sweet.

    I don't think that's an ishapore jungle. I have a close friend with an ishapore in .308 and the clip on his is square like my M1A's. That was the first thing that caught my eye when we were shopping and found it. The fact that it didn't have the rounded clip.

    I would bet that one is an enfield jungle in .303, but hey, I could be wrong.

    beat me to it. Too slow I guess.
