    Fortunately here in Canada we're able to get a license for rifles/shotguns and another to buy functioning handguns with barrels longer than 4" (but with heavy restriction of course on the handguns, for range and collection use only). I also own a beretta M9 (US army replacement for the Colt 1911), Carl Gustav M96 and a deactivated Sauer 38h. I've had to jump through a lot of hoops to be able to get my handgun license but it's defiantly worth it as a collector and gun enthusiast.

    If you have never shot a jungle carbine, be prepared for some serious recoil. I would recommend shooting it from the off-hand position (standing) so you can rock back with the recoil. I used to own one and made the mistake of shooting it from a rest on a shooting table the first time I took it to the range. It was the first time I ever had my Delta Rest fly off the table.
    After watching that jungle carbine rock me back (when shooting from the off-hand position), I couldn't get any of the guys at the range to try it!

    Beautiful weapons!!
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul.

    Very nice! Thanks for sharing!

    Question, are both of the Enfield mags altered to only except 5 rounds?

    So I hear, My buddy's dad has one and hes warned aswell. Unfortunately for me I also shoot left handed so the sling mount on the side will more than likely leave its mark. I do have plenty of experience with a hunting rifle 30-06 with plenty of recoil and ive shot sporterized lee enfield's which i expect to be similar to the carbine. I shall update you guys this weekend on how the first shoot goes ahaha

    To answer your question Danny none of the mags have been modified, in Canada the 5 round rule only applies to semi automatics therefore bolt actions can carry as many as they please.

    I am very envious of you for the condition of these weapons. Two main factors make it difficult to own guns this pristine. Bubba and humidity..
