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: Australian Enfield Mark 111 Lithgow rifle markings

I believe the pamplets are available here: https://vickersmg.wordpress.com/manual/small-arms-training-manuals/ TK Thanks for that - great site that I was not aware of. It seems that they do not have the Pamphlet Part 7, No 11 (Small Arms Ammunition) They seem to have different series as their Pamph...

Re: Australian Enfield Mark 111 Lithgow rifle markings

MESSAGE : Error File too large: Small Arms Training Pamphlet 11 (Ammunition).pdf Which is why I suggested sending it to any interested parties, it is 12mb and this is just one of a series of 18 'pamplets' in the series examples : No1 = "Weapons Training" No2 = "Application of Fire" No3 = "Rifle" ......

Re: Australian Enfield Mark 111 Lithgow rifle markings

I am really intrigued with this.. are there any records or extra details as to how unreliable??? Or how the ammo was determined to be Unreliable?? I just picked up my first MK III* and it is a 1941 Lithgow. Apart from surplus and rolling your own, any input on the best ammunition available for it. ...

Re: Australian Enfield Mark 111 Lithgow rifle markings

Seems local gun show guys like to talk about the 1000's of rounds they have hoarded away but not about selling any. My only box is from 1942 and Wi...

Re: 1907 bayonet

No pictures but it is exactly the same as a internet search that resulted in pictures, You do realise that 1907 is not the year of manufacture, but the 'model' year of design ? It could be manufactured anywhere between around 1907 & 1980, ( although if it is marked GRI, then it is pre-independence ...

Re: 1907 bayonet

I picked up a 1907 bayonet marked GRI with crown, Seems to be India, but the grips has AUSTRALIA stamped on them. Is it possible this bayonet was used by the Aussies? I think that it will be a pre 1968 US import mark, rather than an Aussie 'ownership' mark. Much like the Savage No4 rifles marked 'E...

Re: Random Resources

The one thing I have learned in my 15 years of collecting Lee-Enfields is that there is a exception to every rule. I have always appreciated Jay's information. It was a great site when there were very few sites around. Perfect it is not and that's the fun of continuing to observe and learn. I feel ...

Re: Random Resources

Years ago it came from Jay Currah's site. The site is gone now, but preserved here. https://www.milsurps.com/enfield.php Thank you. No chance of getting the errors corrected them. There are a number on that page alone. eg :- B for Bantam is NOT 1/2" shorter than N length (Normal), the S (short) is ...

Re: SMLE expeerts needed "Notched" bolt head. How to use it?

The threads are not different, the same early FP was used all though the Mk1 SMLE production into early MkIII production, you will always encounter variations in tolerances It was not the striker threads I was referring to but the bolt head threads - I could not get the 'slotted type' bolt head to ...

Re: SMLE expeerts needed "Notched" bolt head. How to use it?

Ok we have some confusion here. The bolt head IS the tool in this version. I discovered this recently, completely by accident & am trying to uunerstann. There are apparently 2 distinct bolt heads for the SMLE. One has a longer, threaded portion with a square cut "notch" machined into it, the other ...

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". Well, LocoFritz, if you indeed have "plenty" of No.4 sight blades then trial & error fitment will cost you nothing. If the current blade is as loose as you say you should ...
