Looking For A Origonal Antique, Three Band Enfield, Must Be in Good Condition,With A Good Barrel, With Extra's Would Be A Bonus. Would Consider A Two Band, No Rubbish Please. Will Be At The Stalking Fair At Muir of Ord On Sunday The 30th.

Might be worth a conversation with Chris at Lucas and Watts Gunsmiths - he has a passion for this sort of thing, shoots similar and has restored several over the last year or so.

Are you looking for antique for sticking in the wall or are you wanting to shoot it? And are you wanting to shoot it for a bit of black powder fun or do you want it to be a competitive rifle?

The club I am a member of pretty much revolves around enfields with quite a few floating about for sale, the competitive ones rarely come up for sale but a lot of other good rifles do that don't quite make the competitive grade.

2 band is preferred for competitive, how come you have preference for the 3 band?

Don't discount 'reproductions'... I have an early 1970's Parker Hale (Made in Birmingham) 2 Band, 5 groove, Enfield.

The first five shots I ever made with it, standing unsupported, at 50 yards, made a group of 3 3/8"

I've not repeated that since (a couple of months ago), but I'm working on it!
