I have one with the Bowie-type bayonet. I guess that the so-called "wandering zero" didn't keep them from being used in combat.

If it was the original bayonet they are worth a pretty penny (over 200 USD). The "wandering zero" is more of a myth and really never was an documented issue. Some say it was a British myth to justify ending production in 47, who knows.

Nice, I have been wanting to get me one of those for awhile now, ended up getting me a Spanish FR-8 instead because 308 being more readily available, but still want to get one down the road :)

.303 is roughly the same price as .308. Prvi Partizan makes some nice loads. Enfields are just a pleasure to shoot. I love them!
