the jungle # 5 smle in some circles can be worth up to 500.00 - 600.00 dolars canadian, if it's in excellent condition. i rebuilt and refinished one with a scope for my son in law. the wood was in bad shape so it was replaced with a ramline enfield 2 piece stock and forend.if you have numrich gun parts corp. cataloque, there are a few good books they sell on the complete enfield line with alot of historical info. scope mounts can be had for them, made by advanced technologies ltd. but they are expensive. a good stock maker can make a one piece stock for enfields, thus allowing you to cut off the center conection piece behind the trigger guard. when reblued they are a faily attrative rifle and for some strange reason , ammo is still redily available. good luck pblsyd p.s. my hunting buddy shot a 900 pound bull moose last oct. with a smle no.1 mrk.1. thank god for a.t.v.'s

my number 1 mrk 1 was in the box, packaged in greased waxed paper, bolt wrapped separately. it was purchased in kingston, ontario ,in 1971 for the grand sum of ........ $29.95 lol. at that time , as now it was a cheap entry level deer rifle. i think at one time every big game hunter in canada owned an enfield .303 british. i assume your #5 jungle rifle has the sling attachment in the side of the stock? i can't seem to find anybody who knows why it was designed like that. i've worked on dozenz and dozens of them. yours should have the flip over peep vernier rear sight. that sight alone in numrich 's cataloque is about $40.00 - $45.00 U.S. goodluck. pblsyd

I heard that the MK 5 has to have the rear sight adjusted quit freqent. I bought a India made in 306 for 58.95 at Rose Department store about 10 years ago. When they stop selling they still over 60 in the attic
