    Australian SMLE in 7.62x39 ?

    This is the first time I have ever seen one of these. Is this really a thing or a one off?

    They were not around long but are now commanding a good price due to limited No.'s built they have a few models with different configs of stocks also in 308WIN which resembles the Enforcer a member at our gun club has this one will have to scrounge a shot of it one day when I get back into the milsurp scene.

    Thanks for the head up on the auction. I am interested to see what it brings as I have one. They certainly have gone up in value since I purchased mine. I embarrassed to say that I've had mine probably 8-10 years and haven't fired it. I guess I need to take it to the range on the next trip.

    I can also remember the No 4 rifle being converted to fire the 223 Remington cartridge too

    It is a beautiful rifle but WAYYYYY out of my price point. You should send us pictures of your rifle

    Let me see if I can dig mine out. I haven't seen it in a bit and would like to take a look anyway.
