Hiya Guys, it looks like a beautiful ol' Lee Enfirld followed me home, but not just any Enfield... I've been on the hunt for an all-original unmolested ounsporterized Enfield for a few years now since my ex up & moved out and I was forced to sell my firearms collection including several Enfields that I had to get back on my feet so I could keep this place and get things back on track again. Well, sure it is a few years later and I've had the chance to pick up several sporterized Enfirlds that I just wasn't interested in because I'm more interested in replacing some of the firearms that I had in my old collection rather than settling with or making due with something that's been molested. Well, it looks like I've been making the right choices for the right reasons lately and things seem to be going my way for a change and I actually caught a break this go-round'. I was perusing the local gun Grapevine after my little brother left yesterday and I was kind of kicking myself for not jumping on a 1977 Winchester model 94 30-30 that I could have scored for $200 but I decided to be responsible and not pick it up after what I spent on brass and stuff for my reloading bench lately when I ran across a listing for a Lee Enfield Ishapore 2A-1 in .308, needless to say I just had to reach out and touch bases with the guy that had it. As it turns out he was just a kid and a student over here at Boise State that had recently escaped from California and moved to Boise with his family and he's been enjoying the gun laws or lack there for of here in Idaho. He had the Enfield listed for sale or trade but he was more interested in a trade for something like a nice handgun for ccw that he could enjoy taking to one of the many indoor ranges around here. We talked about things for a little while and he decided he was really liking my Modelo Star M40 Firestar, and well, since I'm laid up and I can't carry it like I got it for in the first place and even though I really didn't want to let it go I made an exception for this Enfield . I rolled outta bed this morning & let my girlfriend sleep in for awhile while I had my coffee before I woke her up and we headed into Boise since she had to pick up a few things for her work anyway. Now that we made it back home and grabbed something to eat for dinner I'm got some free time to examine this Enfield better & I gotta say, this thing is beautiful and has some serious character to it. I had to grab my magnifying glass and get this in the right lighting to decipher the ID tag on the right side under the bolt handle but I can verify that this is a 2A1 marked 7.62mm 2A1 rifle 1967. It only took 4 or 5 yrs but I finally have an unmolested unsporterized Enfield back in my collection & a 308 to boot ..
