    I am thinking of selling my L39A1. It is in great shape and is very accurate and is also a real one and not a cut down No4. Work is going slow and I may have to cut down on my Enfield collection. The L39A1 is the military target version of the L42A1 sniper rifle. I am told there are about 1200 L39's out there. It has all the correct markings and is dated 1972. Please email stangchris@aol.com for info or pics. Thanks.
    Sell for $1650

    The rifle has the .308 caliber magazine which holds 10 rds and enables rapid fire shooting. Here ia a link to some pics. The rifle has no import marks and the bore is in great shape.

    There is a pic of it with a scope and of a 3 shot 100 yard group of right at .50". it was shot with 155 SMK handloads but the potential is there...

    Reduced to $1450 Shipped, Offers and trades considered.

    I guess I am confused by the photos mate. In the first pictures, you have a .303 mag in the rifle & then an Ishapore 7.62 mag in it, neither of which were standard for the L39.

    Do you happen to have the original Enfield 7.62 mag for it or not?

    Not trying to be an ass but I am also a big collector of Enfields as I grew up with them in the UK & like a dummy, traded my Enforcer in against my L42A1..... things that make you go DUH!!!

    The original mag for the L39A1 is a .303 standard mag which is used as a loading platform for single shot. It does not have a .308 mag like the L42 or the Enforcer. I have added a .308 mag to enable it to function as a repeater. I do not have the .303 mag as it came with no mag when I got it. Thanks.
