Re: Help with tightening a Jungle Carbine front sight

Its the machined part attached to the barrel with the sight dovetail in the top. You'd probably call it the "front sight base".

Early SMLE .303 mag. Worth a few bucks to collectors. I guess they used it to finish off a .22rf?

Re: Help with tightening a Jungle Carbine front sight

IIRC No4 & No5 are the same, for interchangeability, but No1 isn't.

Re: Thinking of a 10/22.

I've had mine for ever from new. At first it was a bit finicky about ammo, but a bit of use loosened it right up. It definitely does not like truncated conical point bullets though.

Musketry was a very thoroughly taught skill back then. Indoor training at 25 yds was the place all were trained in he basics, then they graduated to the .303 for final finishing at longer rages.

Re: Reloading PSL, deformed cases

Or under resizing & they're crushing in the chamber. Looking at the damage closely it looks more like "scraped off & bashed" than "dented in".
