Description: This rifle was manufactured by Fazakerly. All numbers match- stock and all metal parts. On the left side of the receiver is marked "F" [Fazakerly], a space and then "MP". I have not been able to decifer "MP". The receiver contains a British proof of a crown over "G" over flags indicating King George VI cir. 1936-1952. The cocking piece is inscribed with "S 262" the mark of Roneo Ltd. Essex (original for No5). The rear site is Mk.2. The bayonet is the 8 in. No. 5, blade bayonet with scabbard. The blade is marked "P)1946". This rifle shows ageing but no dents, scratches etc. and the metal is 100%.

If interested, please ask for more pics. I shoot every detail.

This short 303 British caliber rifle was developed because, during WWII, the British and Australian forces needed a short rifle for the Asian jungle campaign. The standard No.4 was too heavy and awkward in close quarters. So, for those of you who say that this No. 5 is not accurate at 300 yards, it was not designed to be. This is a close quarter rifle and hence you will note the flash suppressor.

On March 21, 1944 the finalized design of the "Lightening" rifle was approved. On Sept 12, 1944 the name of this model was officially changed to Rifle, No. 5 Mk. 1. The name "Jungle Carbine" is common but not official. The features unique to the No. 5 Mk. 1 rifle are:

-The action is the same as the No.4 but has been lightened by removing steel in some areas. -The 20.5 inch barrel includes a pinned-on flash eliminator. -The rear sight is graduated to 800 yards, instead of the 1300-yard sight found on No.4 rifles. -The butt stock has a rubber recoil pad

Production of the new rifle began at the Royal Ordnance Factories at Fazakerly and BSA Shirley. Although several thousand No. 5 rifles were made before WWII ended in August 1945, the design did not see a lot of combat use during the war. Hence, the excellent condition of this rifle.
