    Jungle Carbine No.5 MkI barrel length needed

    If I could get a few folks with real No.5's to measure barrel length (as measured from closed bolt face to end of flash hider it sure would help me in resurrecting at true No.5 receiver into something close to an actual carbine.

    Also any stock dimensions would be great as well.



    Thank you all!

    First time I ever had chips and gravy was in Cleethorpes. My friend told me when he was a young lad in school that a class mate got washed out with the tide never to be seen again. Beautiful place though...enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Anyhow, do you have any dims on the stock? Trying to use up a butchered No.4 stock and and rear hand-guard. Need to know how to tapper both.

    Thanks again for all your help sir!
