Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Info on Sht Lee Enfield 1917 no1 mk3*

This is my take. I found a naggered No5 Mk1. Refinished (nicely blued), bayo lug gone, stock had dollops of epoxy everywhere & had been hogged out with a chainsaw. I wouldn't call it bedding! :o :violin: It was priced right so I took a chance. At the range it did patterns about 1/2 a county to the r...

Oh man!
:-?
They were the best of the aftermarket 5-rounders. I hope its still functional.
Santa Fe were reworked rifles made into fantasy guns in the U.S. they have slowly escaped the stigma of "Bubba'ed Sporters" & are gaining collectable status in their own right.

Re: Lee-Enfield System

Hey I hate to ask one more question here but any idea what Enfield was selling a rifle to the English Government for in this time frame... An SMLE Mk III rifle cost the British Government £3/15/- (75 shillings) in 1918 Meanwhile Joe Public was coughing up the princely sum of £6/15-6 for a plain mil...

Re: Lee-Enfield System

There were also even smaller denominations than the penny. That should put the difference in the actual purchasing power backwards adjusted to remove inflation into perspective. The "Old" Penny as opposed to the new "Pence" was a huge coin, about the size of a U.S. silver dollar. It actually was cos...

Re: Lee-Enfield System

My catalog is a reproduction, but its undated. However I've seen similar covers that are original dated 1912. Factoring in inflation for 1912 sterling that 135 shillings would be a hefty £756.27 in 2018 money! Here's the opposite side of that page with all the specs. Lee Enfield Carbines specs201802...

Re: Lee-Enfield System

I based my reply on this: "Carbine" is mentioned, but there's no mention of "Cavalry" so I went with "Lee-Enfield Carbine No1 for officers use (with bayonet fitting)". Might the "Cavalry" moniker be a bit like the "Jungle Carbine" appellation for the No5?

Re: Info on Sht Lee Enfield 1917 no1 mk3*

Not really sure about the transverse hole its in an odd place. That's explained by the Norwegian magazine blocking rule though. Sadly its destroyed any remaining value in the magazine though. Yes its been sported & so devalued heavily. The rounded edges of the cocking piece are just a different mark...

Re: SMLE Front Sight Question

Right about where the reinforcing rib is? That's common it usually means the hadnguards are contacting the barrel forcing it down. Do the crayon test & remove as needed.
