Since you live in the land that could actually freeze Hell over, would you rate the FAL as reliable as the Enfield? Perhaps if both used a dry lubricant? Do you have to move (not necessarily completely cycle) the Enfield's action to keep it from freezing up? And how to the action covers work up there? Are they worth carrying?

How do scopes hold up in the temperature extremes? I'd imagine cheap one would be pretty worthless after a short bit of time.

Thanks for the reply, LOL.

I bought the L1A1 because at the time I lived in teh mountains and although didn't see -40 often, it did get there, and the FAL design had such a rep for reliability.

My first Enfield I bought because it was a relatively rare 6-groove. Boy does it shoot.

BTW, both are Canadian models. I'm also fond of Garands. It's too bad you guys lost so much of your gun culture, you do good work!

6 groves are not rare on Longbranch Enfields. If your lucky enough to have a Canadian C1A1 , baby it, charish it, it is an excellent battle rifle of immense quality.
6-groovers are rare as hen's teeth. Mine was a special order item. Must not be looking in the right places. You know if they made any 6-groovers with the micrometer rear sights instead of the vernier slide?
