Check out this rifle! Beautiful! I think it is a .45, but I could be wrong.

I like the drum magazine 😛

    Yeah, that's an Enfield with a conversion to 45 acp. The absolute proof is the ProMag 1911 drum magazine.

    I'd love to have a DeLisle replica myself someday but they're pricey and the suppressor tax stamp is another $200 down the drain. Valkyrie Arms previously made an interesting DeLisle but their page is down now.

    I'd love to have one of the SIA enfield conversions in 7.62x39 too! I love cheap ammo.

    The drum puts the shooter too high off the deck. Considering that a 45 Enfield has an effective distance 100 to 250 yards depending on the shooter, one might consider blackening and greening the weapon, flip up scope covers that hide reflection as well, a hush puppy, a G suit which matches your surroundings, and being recessed back or seemingly obscured. Duh
