When I first got my C&R FFL I found a distributer selling Indian Enfield 2A rifles for a good price, so I snapped one up. Overall I fell I got what I paid for . Its an accurate rifle and it works, but the action is sloppy, the sights are microscopic (and on a mile-long rifle damn-near impossible to use), and the “Finish” appears to be black Exterior Paint.

It appears the Quality Control at the Ishapore factory haven’t gotten much better in recent years.

    My dad left me his 2A. I love the rifle dearly as it is the only one he left me, but whoa mama… He didn’t fire it much. 100-200rds ? I fired 12 rounds with pretty impressive accuracy (considering it’s a 2A) and wondered what was happening to my brass- the primers were about .015″ proud of the fired case. Headspace was set to “holy crap I lived?”

    Nepal Nakhu Arsenal Snider rifles are worse. They keyhole, but they’re fun because it’s fun to thump 500 grainers out there. Sorta like shooting a grenade launcher more than a rifle. Guess they worked OK in the days of “volley fire”?
