Of course, the top one is what we'd be able to get.

The Centuary arms ones are rhineland mods. Wrote them a email to ask about them:



Dear Century Arms,
I am writing to find out more about your Enfield No. 4 Carbine, Cal .45ACP.
I was wondering if I could learn more about the the following:
1. what is the current avaliblity of the rifle?
2. Is this rifle being built in house?
3. Is this rifle using the Rhineland Arms .45 ACP lee enfield modification?
4. Would it be possible to know what type of lee enfield actions you are
using?
5. Will it accept standard m1911a1 magazines?

And the Reply:


1. The rifle is being in limited lots so I cannot comment on current
availability.
2. The rifle is being assembled here before refinish.
3. Yes.
4. The receivers are UK mfg.
5. The gun should take standard magazines.



Surplusrifle.com has a review of the centuary rifles and the rhineland mods. I am probably going to wait until Valkriye arms comes out with their .45 sporter carbine before deciding :)

Frankly I don't see the point of a bolt action 45 acp carbine unless maybe it was suppressed. What use can it have that say a 1911 couldn't fill?

I've been working off and on with the .45 kit for my Mauser.

The mags sit too high and the bolt hits the mag instead of stripping off a round.

Someday I'll find time to remove the block, redrill and finally be able to shoot it.

I got one just because I like to shoot .45acp, so I have lots of brass to reload.
Until we can get suppressors allowed in this state (as a public health issue maybe?), it'll just be a tinker toy for me.

Here's a working CAI link to the enfield
