Does anyone have one of these that they can share their experience with? I'm interested in picking up a short, carbine length iron sighted rifle like this and am seeking any opinions on this particular rifle.

I have a Gibbs No. 7 Jungle carbine which is an Ishapore 2A cut down into a 308 version of an Aussy prototype of the No 5 303 Brit Jungle Carbine used late in wwII. The Extreme Model is a nickel plated version with a few extras.

The no 7 I have is a quick handling carbine that shoots really good for just $209 about one year ago. I don't know what the extreme is going for but I can't see much value in the nickel plating compared to the military finish on my rifle. Just my .02 worth.

And it's my first post here!
