I've all three.
Hmmm,the links don't seem to work.The sites are there though.:shrugs:
Actually, there is NO functional difference between the MKIII an MK 4. The differences are in sights, bayonet type and cosmetic design. The MK 4 was a war time rifle and left off the more complicated (and expensive) sight and switched to a cheaper bayonet design. It's still a fine rifle. I just prefer the old MKIII design. The bolt action on either of these is probably the fastest that was ever made. The German's in 1915 thought the British were using machine guns rather than MKIII's, because the rate of fire was so rapid.84 C4 said:LOL!! The links work, just typed 'em in wrong. Here:
You just forgot the space after the word "here." Thanks for the links!! Also, could you tell me the functioning difference between the Enfield MKIII and the MKIV?
Magnum 88C, How do you use that front sight tool? I got one with my M-44, but can't get the hang of using it. Thanks.Magnum88C said:One clarification, the M38 not only does not have the permanently afixed bayo like the M44, but it also cannot be fitted with one. They never came with them. If you want a handy, cheap, powerful hunting rifle, the M38 is a great choice. For long rifle enthusiasts (like me) the M91/30 is a great rifle and has the removable bayo. If you want one that's good for hunting and one in full military trim, get a 91/30 and an M38.
Another thing to look for are 91/59s which are basically 91/30s cut down to M38 length. Though these are fairly rare and will cost a lot more than $60.
I own an M38, M44 and M91/30, they're all great. The bargain is even better considering most place you buy from pack it with a sling, oil can, front sight tool and ammo pouch, M91/30s also have the bayonet.
These aren't minute-of-angle rifles, but they're great fun to shoot and do the deed hunting.
