Gotta love an ‘end of the world’ Enfield
I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptic films (hey, I write gun stuff and zombie books, go figure).
One of the neater of the breed I just saw was Young Ones (its on Netflix). The sci-fi film is set in a post-drought apocalypse U.S. and has the always under-appreciated Michael Shannon as the main character. Overall the film isn’t that bad as depressing-ass, end-of-the-world stuff goes. Heck, when you compare it to the rest of the genre, is actually pretty good.
Anyway, Shannon gets big points for using this bad boy throughout:
As far as I can tell its a Short Magazine Lee Enfield MkIII in .303 British (originally) that has been chopped down, its forearm removed, its stock replaced by a side folding tubular one, and a Mossberg 500 12-gauge riot gun fitted underneath.
In the film its simply called “the dually” and as you can see from this image with Shannon’s son using it, the folding stock has a pistol grip but the shotty does not.
Sure it probably weighs 16-pounds, kicks like a mule, and is front heavy, but you got 10+1 .303’s and another 6+1 12’s when needed.
Tell me i don’t need to make one…
