    L39

    Seeing something like this for this kind of price in another country blows my mind.

    That being said with my limited knowledge of these rifles I can't tell if this is a genuine article anymore than the seller claims it to be. Is this serial present in any one's notes or records? I'm not exactly keen on going through all 63 pages of the L42, envoy, etc thread to find it (Quick search of the serial and I found nothing).

    Enfield Rifles

    Thats only $1500.oo/Au which is reasonable for that rifle as Mum wrapped No.4's they are asking $2.2K/Au.

    As for the H's & T sniper rifles they go from 8K+ for a T all the way up to 14K for a Ht that I have seen on usedguns.com.au though asking and getting are 2 different things

    Those HT's sure do attract quite a lot, but thinking of the amount of numbers made and comparing them makes me think the L39 should be worth much more that this. I would think it would not go for anything less $5k over here.

    Nijalninja,
    I know Simon the owner of Highwood Classic Arms very well. If he is selling the rifle, it is authentic, and I for one, think the price tag is absoutely right and spot on for this classic rifle.

    Roy,
    Absolutely correct. All the series of these rifles, L39/L42/Enforcer etc are going up daily and £800 pounds in my book is a cheap rifle, especially for its condition.
    Not sure what the delivery to OZ would be on top of that, but even if it cost £200GBP it would be worth it IMHO.

    I've seen L39's go for upto £1250 recently, in excellent condition.

    Like Peter says, everything was cheap yesterday.



    I wonder how long it will be before people say "I remember when a good L39 was only £800! "
