    What I have here is a 303 sporter from an older gent who has decided to not renew his license. Details are

    Condition is described by the Gunsmith as pretty good. Barrel is in good condition to very good condition. You can see by the pictures that it has been cared for and has spent a lot of time in storage and not a lot of time being used. The gunsmith valued it at between $200 and $300 when he saw it with one magazine along with his assessment of the rifle and said that would be a fair price.

    It comes with one magazine for the price but there are two more magazines that fit. First person who wants either a magazine or the rifle gets first choice. I am trying to get the best price for the gentleman involve, but we are not asking a fortune for it. $200 for the rifle plus shipping if needed with one magazine and $50 each for the other magazines. Buy all three mags and the rifle and I will pay for the shipping. (That is $300 delivered for the lot)

    I will answer any questions about it as best I can.

    The three magazines all fit it well. The magazines are

    A Ten round Lee Enfield magazine (A)
    A Japanese made 5 shot magazine with the same rounded base as the 10. It is NOT a cut down ten but a factory made 5. (B)
    A Lee Metford 10 round magazine (C)

    The rifle did have someone wanting it but he was making a bush pig and he did not want to cut up one in as good a condition as this. (He spent the same amount on a not as good one to avoid the guilt.) Thus it is now listed here. If you want any more details I have access to the rifle to take photos, but personally I do not knwo a great deal about them and would have to ask the gunsmith.

    I know bugger all about them also and not interested myself but If the barrel is good it’s quite rare to get one with a good tube these days which probably makes it a candidate for a restoration back to mill spc ?
    It might pay to find out if it’s numbers match
    Not sure why people get so cought up on that
    But anyway
