Enfield No. 5 "Jungle Carbine" in .22LR

While looking for something else, I ran across this discussion of Enfield No. 5s in .22LR:

Fabulous! Wouldn't I love to own one of those! The scoped one is particularly cool looking. All it needs to be perfect is a full pistol-grip stock, as I never cared at all for the curious Enfield "hook" pistol grip stock.

Way cool.

Never saw one, but it certainly is a reasonable thought since we did the same with the Springfield althouh earlier and in larger numbers.

Midway has the scope in stock for $63 so I'm gonna order it. I figure it'll be plenty good enough for shooting out here in the desert southwest—plenty of light ALL the time. "Everyone" says to use Weaver mounts, but of course they never actually say why. I'll go ahead and try the tip-off rings if they look good to go with the Ruger mount.

That just looks like a whole lotta fun, Snake! Wonder how much a new run of these would price out? B et they could sell more than a few if it was half way reasonable.

Thanks for reviving this old thread. I'd completely forgotten about this.

Now I want one all over again! In fact, the only things I can think of I'd want MORE would be a .22 LR M14 or "tanker" Garand.

Further:

If I knew where I could get an Enfield .22 bolt, I'd build my own, even if I had to have a custom .22 barrel made for it, and use it as a single shot.

Hell, if I knew where I could get an Enfield .22 bolt, I'd buy TWO and similarly convert a No. 4. Perhaps with a scope on it.
