Default An Irish Lassie!

One of the last of the mighty Enfield bolt action rifles was built by Fazakerley back in the mid 50's for the Irish....they ordered 49,999 of them. For whatever reason they were never shipped to Ireland and were stored as war reserves/issued as training rifles. I have a friend who I trade guns with on occasion who was looking for a war time Long Branch and offered the unissued Faz in trade. When it arrived I was shocked when I read the serial number....PF320744. The range of serial numbers for the Irish contract rifles was 309348 to 359347. These don't turn up often. I present the Irish lassie and a beauty she is indeed!
