    With no repro barrels available for the No.5, conversion to .410 on shagged barrel No.5's would be an excellent option, I know at least 3 people as well as myself that would have a .410 No.5..................except, the No.5 barrel is only 19" long, so therefore under the min allowed for Shotgun Cert ownership... hence no .410 JC's around.

    These days shot out No4's are converted to .410. The cost of re barrelling (with a new manufacture barrel) is just too expensive ... That said, as good shooting No4's continue to rise in value as the available supply dwindles, re- barrelling is slowly getting more of an option.

    Back in the 1970's and 80's though it was different, really good tight No4's were almost give away items, dirt cheap and plentiful, so new condition Rifles were regularly smooth bored for collectors on Shotgun certificates unfortunately.

    Like everything John, rifle prices are going skywards especially little "gimmicks" like these in No4 Rifle...............better than a deactivated one sitting on the wall which would cost more IMHO

    True mate, better than chopping them. I hear the last batch of LB No4 mk 1*'s that World Wide Arms deactivated were in excellent shooting condition, having seen very little use ... What a dreadful waste of good shooting grade Enfield's.

    Been away for awhile. Saw this post. Looking at one right now. (GRI) I have Pakistani ammo for it in the case. Smelly original case. Pretty neat though. Word has it mine was converted to .410 before Britainicon gave up India. Has a blocked one round mag. Issued to Indian Police? Are these the rifles you speak of?

    Sounds like yours is the No III conversion. These were official conversions and issued to Indian police.
