Golden State Arms to be a walk concern ago in the so late "50s and throughout the "60s. Castle sporterized plenty of .303 brother rifles in a pair of different grades of finish and wood. I"ve never ever owned one, but I"ve never ever heard noþeles bad about them, and also in fact have heard and read numerous favorable reports. I purchased my first high power rifle, a No.1 Mk.III* Lee Enfield from them in 1958. I still have one that their books which is now an extremely hard to come by. My rifle was "as-issued" and also I"ve maintained it the way.Attachment 153582

GSA rebuilt so many rifles in various flavors that there"s no way they cataloged castle all. I"ve seen various No1 MkIII"s and No4 MkI"s rebuilt in to "Jungle Carbines". Part No4"s looked choose very an excellent No5 clones, the No1"s looked like a close however not rather clone and some simply looked choose a searching sporter but they all had actually "Jungle Carbine" rolled stamped ~ above the barrel. Sports of parts and stocks abounded... As soon as they got to the bottom the the barrel, the genuine ratty guns (and they offered them in barrels) would be pieced in addition to any an excellent parts obtainable or even throw in a few new parts to do a sell-able firearm.... Choose my K98. They were into selling mil-surp not standard version guns and they did whatever it took to obtain them the end the door... This was prior to "rare and also collectible" was offered to define a Lee Enfield, K98 or "03 Springfield. Castle were simply old firearms sold in barrels inexpensively.Yes, lock made some nice sports conversions but this to be a small section of your sales and also subject to change with the end notice.
