Here's my Enfield scout rifle that is based a sported No5 "Jungle Carbine" I bought a few years back that was not a good candidate for restoration.

Thanks guys! I wanted something more modern but still wanted to keep true to her roots. She is very handy, she's my go to rifle for deer hunting.

Very well done! Looks like new production!

If you don't mind, Eric, please tell us about the scope. (Make, model, mini-review)

I'm looking around for good mid/long eye relief options. Many seem to be junk.


Thanks.

Jay

Sorry for taking so long to respond I actually didn't know what to say. The scope is a NCStar 2-7X32E long eye relief. I am actually new to this type of scope and only have put about 50 rounds through my rifle with it. It is a little strange or different because of the eye relief but I do like it. The cross hairs are a little too fine for me but that might be because of the variable power so the cross hairs will not take up too much of the field of view on higher settings. I bought the lighted reticle but I do no like the way they have it set up. You see a light ring all the way around the outside circumference of the eyepiece which is very distracting for me. I have had other scope that only lit up the reticle. I do have 2 other scout scopes by NCStar and both are a fixed 2.75X22 30mm tube with a heavier reticle. One is on my Marlin 336 30-30 which I really like and so does my son. I might try the other on my Enfield to compare it to the variable powered one. All three scope are very clear. The price is or actually was right for at the $50-$70.00 range. I didn't want to drop too much on a scope that I could not get use to. Yes there are mixed reviews on the NCStar and I still would recommend this scope if you are on a budget I just would not recommend the lighted reticle.

I like what you did by modding/keeping the upper handguard---really adds to the good looks of
your rifle--

Look at these:

The Burris may be the 'best of the bunch'.

That was what a lot of my research showed me too. I, myself, was on a tight budget and went with the NCStar. I hope to get a Burris Scout 2-7X32 someday in the future too.

Thanks, Eric & Popeye, for all the info.

That "Ballistic Plex" reticle on the Burris is great.

IMO, most of the reticles are either too sparse (ie- just a dot) or too cluttered. I may have to start saving my milk money....

That's a nice looking Carbine ! Hows it handle with the scope on? Balance forward,? Neutral? Just curious?
303 is a great intermediate round that hits above it's weight class ! Don't have one yet but want one ! :thumb:

It handles pretty nicely and though it is a little front heavy if I hold back towards the magazine or even rest the front of the magazine on the edge of my palm it sets and holds nicely for me.
