Enfield Rifle No.5 Mk.1 "Jungle Carbine"

So I just picke done of these up [couldn't resist the price]. I hear a couple of things frequently about these guns that I'm unsure about and I wanted to hear from some one out there who owns one.

First is the so called "wanderign zero". Some say the british wouldn;t have ditched it if there wasn't a problem. Others say they've never experiences it and think the real problem ma be the "flinch factor". what's your experience?

The other is the kick - Ive seen several referances to to it's "fierce recoil", So... how "fierce" are we talking? M38 or M44 Mosin rifle fierce? Worse? Less?

Anything I shuld be aware of before shooting this? I've already gave it a complete arsenal level tear down and clean, and have some nice Privi Partizan ammo for it.

Thanks~
