    Wtb Siamese 303 Enfield.

    Evening all,

    On behalf of someone who is a bit short of things to shoot with now. He does not use the forums but is looking for one of the Siam enfield 303s? I don't think they are very common?

    If anyone is thinking of moving one on he is rather keen to adopt one. He normally only used semis so wants to start with boltie on this one.

    Cheers

    Extremely rare collectable, not many I believe have survived out of the 10,000 made due to being destroyed by the Japanese and rotting away in the harsh environment they where deployed in. If someone has one, they can name their price as the sky is the limit, plenty of collectors I know will pay top dollar.

    I've seen the odd one come up over the years, the Mauser 303's are encountered a little more often, it used to be a "thing" to convert them to 45-70 and the like, bit of a shame as they were great as 303's . . .

    I thought they were some weird 8mm caliber? I really should know seeing as I own one.

    Hmmm - Gun nut you are right, the true Siamese is an 8mm cartridge, however Daniel Fraser and other Brit gunmakers got them from Mauser chambered in 303 (the magazine is purpose made for rimmed cartridges)

    I appreciate & respect differing views, I greatly value the benefit of good conversation around differing opinions & respect points of view contrary to my own, however when you’re a belligerent self-opinionated obnoxious troll like individual, +1 to the ignore list
