Say i was building a lee enfield in 500s&w with a 20in barrel and 10rnd mag would there be any interest in this from anyone on this Forum or would this be a Texans hog killin dream gun? I know i would enjoy using this for bear. Any input would be nice.

I'd like to see one. Is the action even strong enough????

I think there would be lots of interest especially if you can keep the price down

The action is strong enough as long as you dont put superloads thru it, the enfields action is rated for about 8,000 more psi than the traditional 500 loads.

LOL Yes the action would be plenty strong enough to handle even hot loaded .500 S&W. Just make sure you get that action inspected thoroughly and use a high quality barrel. Also I would recommend that you bed the action as well as the barrel.

i've never heard about a lee enfield in 500. sounds pretty neat. that's a lot of power you have in a pretty compact package. anything you shoot at with that WILL be down for the count. good luck and shoot straight.:)

Chamber pressure isn't the only thing a firearm needs to be strong enough to handle. Sounds pretty sweet though, make one up and show us what your idea looks like in person!
