    These are going for $200-$300 around here, just the run of the mill surplus rifles, not sure about the rarer types. Did you cut the stock down or was it like that?

    250 tops is what it would bring in my neck of the woods. i do not believe it was cut down/homemade there was a company selling cut down enfields like this a few years back , perhaps century arms ? it was listed as a sporterized enfield

    To bad its just a No4 cut down to look like a No5 Jungle Carbine. It was popular to do for a while. 200-250. If it were a true No5 then 500-600 easy.

    Sure it's .303? That magazine looks like those put on No. 4 rifles that had been converted to .308.

    Pinecone70 is really our favorite "Fellerette". I'd bet that you have one of the Indian Ishapore .308 rifles - looking at the squared off mag. Don't know of anyone who cuts them down like that commercially.

    Have heard a lot of good comments on those rifles, but I've never shot or otherwise handled one. I'd figure about $150 in value. Cut-down surplus rifles usually loose a bit of value.

    (I'll never read another post by Pinecone without remembering "Fellerette" :=))

    Good eye Jim, that mag isn't rounded over like the standard No4.

    JLA - I WAS going to dis-agree with you, but I did check their sales list, and danged if you are right! That after-market mag looks just like the Ishapore conversion mag in 7.62. So it COULD be a .303.

    Why the heck anybody would prefer that one over a standard mag is beyond me. Everybody's taste is different. You can get a decent used one for about the same price.

    Really? Since I just bought a true No.5 for $250 about 6 months ago. Did I do better than I thought?:D
