    Very nice Bill, I have fired one of these, seem to have more recoil than a standard No 4!

    Very nice,I had one of these too, between muzzle blast and recoil I found it unpleasant to shoot so I traded it away.

    The first rifle that I ever purchased was a 'Jungle Carbine'.. In my neighborhood there was a brand new shopping center, in that shopping center there was a Western Auto store and it sold a few rifles..I would ride by bike to the Western Auto Store a couple of times a week, (I was 14yrs. old) and look at the rifles for sale.. Well I also had a paper route and had saved a couple dollars, one Sat. that I went by the Western Auto there was a 'Jungle Carbine' hanging up for sale, I thought it was the coolest thing that I had ever seen, I paied two dollars down and put it on lay-a-way the total price of the 'Jungle Carbine' was 17 dollars and .15 cents per round of .303 ammo.. It took about two more weeks and I had purchased the 'Jungle Carbine', I also purchased 10 rounds of ammo, I took it out to the country on my bike and shot up all the rounds except one which was a dud..I pulled the bullet on the dud and to my susprise it had some spaghetti looking stuff in the shell case.. I later found out that this was cordite, and I had a great time laying the sticks of spaghetti on the ground and lighting them.....This was the start to a wonderful historicaly inlighting hobby of collecting militaria....BILL

    Nice one Bill. We had one of these in our "unoficial" arms room in Afghanistan, and I got to shoot it a couple times with Indian made ball. Definately bites and ear plugs a must!
    Your story reminds me of my youth. Bought a super Jap Type 99 vet bring back all matching including dust cover and original sling from our small Coat-to Coast hardware store with money saved working for my stepfather's construction company all summer. I think I gave $25.00 for it. Still have it in storage in the States.
    Those days are long gone unfortunately!
    Thanks for sharing this one.
