My Enfield .45 conversion kits are complete, they are in stock for immediate delivery.

First run quantities are limited, once these are nearly all sold I will begin another batch.

These are vastly improved over the defunct Rhineland kit!

I use Montana RiflemanŽ match grade barrels, the adaptors fit the receiver properly, the mag catch works properly, the mag release is a lever extending down so there is no need to cut the stock.

My design includes a spring loaded ejector, so rounds actually leave the action when the bolt is cycled.

Threaded barrels for a suppressor, flash hider, or muzzle brake are $50 extra.

Visit my updated site for more details and pics. http://www,specialinterestarms.com

Standard 1911 Colt pistol type.

I supply one Chip McCormick 8 rd. mag.
They work best loaded with seven rounds.

Any good quality 1911 type mag should work.

Can't say that ever occurred to me.

The Enfield is an easy gun to work with, but magazines can be difficult for many conversions.
Barrel thread is 1-14, anything that is short enough to feed and small enough diameter can probably be made to work.

Hi Richard.  I am very interested in this kit.  Can any enfield be used for this conversion?

The preferred gun would be any variation of the No. 4.

I have done them on No. 1's, but it may be necessary to grind a bit off the inside of the mag well and trigger guard to achieve a perfect fit.

The No. 4 receiver mag. well uses strait line cuts, the No.1 is curved.

Richard:

This is Kit from S.Ca, the guy with the '48 Ariel Motorcycle that grandma wants to much $$ for....the .410 conversion should work with the Navy Arms Frontier .45-70 mags which are a bit scarce, but a conversion for the .45-70 would be more popular, so is this one on your future list?

If so, you may even want to contact Val Forgett III (Gibbs/NavyArms) & get his sources for the barrels & mags?

SmileI have a question on a #4 that I have, that was bubba'd a long time ago, not by me .  It had an old "Hollywood" scope on it, just like the Lee Harvey carcano, and was drilled n tapped with 3 horizontal holes in the receivers side.  It also has a pretty chewed up barrel on it, so I was thinking about ditching the old barrel, and making a repro of a heavy barrel target rifle out of it, like was made at one time by the Enfield factory.  Numrich seems to have the HB forearm, so I need a little info on how one might put a HB on this baby?

Heavy barrel is easy, just a tad more expensive.

No price break for one-off barrel blanks, I usually buy 25 at a time to save a few dollars.

If you want to proceed I can put it together for you.
I would have to check my price on the barrel in order to quote the job.
For that I need a sketch of the barrel contour you want to use.

I looked at your website a few months ago or last year and you have a .45 No1 MKIII that looks like the Delisle and I think it said you could build a copy is that correct?
