Enfield No5 MK1 "Jungle Carbines" B Grade Now Available!

We have a small batch of Jungle Carbines available. These carbines are in fair to good condition. Bores range from fair to good.

These rifles are in functional condition and can be shot after a proper cleaning and inspection. The carbines may have small cracks in the stock or hand guard and/or some minor pitting. The finish is worn on the remaining rifles we have, usually about 20-50% of the blueing is left. One of the sling swivels might be missing, rubber buttpad will also be worn due to it's age and use. These rifles are great candidates for restoration or can be used as is. Don't miss this chance to get a Jungle Carbine for under $600!

Please note: the rifle shown above is in very good condition, the remaining rifles are in fair to good condition.


This Carbine is extremely rare - only a limited supply left!

A Brief History on the No. 5 Mk 1 "Jungle Carbine":

The Rifle No. 5 Mk I, was a derivative of the British Lee–Enfield No. 4 Mk I, designed in response to a requirement for a shorter, lighter rifle for airborne forces in Europe. However its operational use was in post-war jungle campaigns such as the Malayan emergency, where it gained its common nickname of the "Jungle Carbine."

Production began in March 1944, and finished in December 1947.

5 of 5 No. 5 Mk. 1 August 15, 2022
Reviewer: Steve from AZ  
The rifle I received was in very good but dirty condition with small dings in the stock (steamable) and the black finish at 50%. The bore was good to excellent and the overall gun condition was perfect for my restoration to a cerakote black finish. The only issue was a non-standard jungle carbine bolt (no lightening hole in the handle) which was in poor/rusted condition. A return was initiated after verification of my bolt and a very good bolt was sent to me. I am very satisfied with this transaction and will do again.

5 of 5 No5Mk1 Jungle Rifle May 17, 2022
Reviewer: Alex M from Manassas, VA  
Ordered with a few other guns; this one was in poor condition. Metal was heavily worn 0% finish. Bore was dark and rusted. Wood had loose fit and butt stock wobbles. Rubber butt pad was worn to nearly nothing. I was not expecting a lot from these B-grade rifles, but the one I got should have been C-Grade. I contacted RTI, and they immediately gave me a call tag and exchanged the firer arm for me. I am very happy customer especially for the $599.99. I think  I got a good deal.

4 of 5 No5 Mk1 B Grade - 1945 March 15, 2022
Reviewer: Justin from Indiana  
Purchased one to round out my Enfield rifle collection. First rifle they sent me looked good except I noticed a small bulge in the barrel after cleaning. Filed for an exchange. Took about a month for them to ship another pick. The second rifle they sent me was in great shape. 85% blueing, mirror bore with good rifling present, no cracks in the wood at all. Only issue is a very small spot of rust on the edge of the chamber. Otherwise a great shooter that sports the worn look. Have not been disappointed with RTI yet.

5 of 5 Good Bore Option January 2, 2022
Reviewer: Seth from Washington  
Upon picking this up at the gun store, the staff commented how bad the gun was making their store smell. A joy to receive with all parts and fully functional. Barrel has rust near the tip and so did the magazine. Bluing was about 50% there. Bore is really nice as hoped for since $100 extra was paid for it. Happy with a 1945 date and BSA manufacturer. Visible Great Britain ownership/acceptance mark. Bolt, receiver and barrel are all matching numbers. Gunsmith inspected it and verified that it is safe to shoot and likely had not been used in battle due to the great condition of the original barrel. Stock is very dirty and chipped in a few places but not cracked. Second gun I have purchased from RTI. Highly recommended. Just have to do something about the foul odor!

5 of 5 B Grade No 5 Mk 1 December 29, 2021
Reviewer: Frank Griffiths from Upstate New York  
Picked up my B Grade No 5 today.
And I was Very Happy with what I received. The stock was in very good shape. The barrel and the receiver were in the white but in excellent shape. Without cleaning the barrel yet, it’s looking like it has very crisp rifling.
With the condition of these rifle being described as fair to good, I was pleasantly surprised with what I received.
Thanks RTI looking forward to my next purchase.
