Re: Lee Enfield no1 mk3 range repot

PPU 50 yard grouping in my old no4 mk1. 2 groove savage build Stringing is just me but it was an accurate gun didn't bed or change anything. Sadly I no longer own this rifle. Worse living in Ireland reloading isn't an option. You can reload but there is only 1 location in the country you can do this...

Re: Lee Enfield no1 mk3 range repot

S&B clear winner
Hornandy flyer my mistake
Remington and FNM very similar
PPU excellent in an old no4 mk1 I had but this no1 mk3 doesn't like it.

Fnm 303 new to me

Hi folks picked up an array I'd 303 ammo today.

Fabrica Nacional de Muniçoes or fnm is a new brand to me, is it safe in a lee Enfield no1 mk3?

Are they corrosive???

Re: 1907 bayonet

Hi folks,

On YouTube forgotten weapons they talk about Indian smle's well in the video they discuss the Indian 1907 bayonet. It's shorter than the standard 16 inch blade and uses a 12. Quick and simple check there 😀

Re: Lee Enfield no1 mk3 rebuild & sight issue

Yeah my heart was broken trying to take it apart last night the pin on the wheel to adjust windage is glued an mushroomed in place 😟
But I did put a drop of glue on the tab and that has given a bit of a bearing surface so I'll try the range again

You are correct blade is loose on the screw
