Hi ,I am a bit of an enfield fan having  collected a few. Listed below
#1mk3*
#4mk1*
#8 .22
#5
Mlm (enfield barrel fitted ) 
Churchill sporting rifle 
And Im just buying a #2mk4 .22 trainer ( marked .22 pat14  on wrist)
The #1mk3* was a rifle my father bought around 1960  for what is now a pittance  7£. He did not a bad job of "sportserising" it considering  his practical skills ended  at sticking things together with sellotape or paper clips ( he was a lawyer ). I have recently re-wooded this rifle and replaced missing bits via ebay .
I live in Thornbury  ,right at the bottom of the south island NZ.
Also into motorbikes and fishing .

Agreed 100% - except I would not wish to be young again for anything as I barely survived this first time🦊
Cheers!

This.
Regrettably due to scammers there is a minimum post count for a few functions, but it does keep the place livable without multiple blockers on the user end.
IIRC it's 30 posts?

A slightly late welcome from Paris France. 
You are lucky to live in the most beautiful place on Earth. 
I spent a month in the South Island on honeymoon in 2002. 
Spent Christmas on Stewart island with a friends family and a few days in Bluff. Basically toured the whole island and got murdered by sand flies in the north west coast! 
To be honest, I think we should have stayed!
My collection of Enfield's is similar; a nice mix of .303 and .22's with a 7.62 for good measure!

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Welcome Mc Tool.  A broad knowledge base here and a few have fabulous collections of Lee Enfield rifles. 

I missed my chance to travel to New Zealand on business, I changed jobs just before the opportunity came up.  Can’t complain though, got to travel to many places in Europe, Africa and Australia.
