Quite rare and do seem to go very quickly as and when they come up.

Has he ever considered one of the other .22 Enfield trainers? .22 Long Branch CNo7Mk1 for sale at Devizes Gunsmith (No connection). The price might horrify, £7.5k.

There’s not many about. When the cadets replaced them, lots of people got excited about getting a surplus example.
They were all destroyed rather than sold off.
No appetite for selling service rifles to civilians anymore in this country.

They haven’t been destroyed they are sat in an armoury awaiting a discussion on whether they are sold to another Army or if they can be sold to the public.
