yes, its a bolt ation rifle. No law aginst bolt action rifles with flash hiders, or folding stocks, or pistol grips, etc.

I have one. If they pass a law against excessive recoil from a SMLE, then it will be illegal.:)

They look much better than they shoot. I've had one for 30+ years and shoot it maybe every 5 years; then I remember why I hadn't shot it the previous 4 years!

Pretty brutal recoil. Wandering zero issue on some. Still, they look cool. I have a beater that I wouldn't get rid of.

Yep - shoot it with a recoil pad. Otherwise you will regret it. Also VERY loud.

Loud, kicks like a mule, silly rubber butt pad that digs into your shoulder, and muzzle flash that lights up the night are all traits of the Mk5 Jungle carbine. Agreed, they do look cool, but I glad I was not issued one...
