Re: Lee Enfield No.8

A shame these will be destroyed. Whether they stayed in the E.U or not won't make any difference. The U.S. is unique in that it was created out of a disdain for tyranny as opposed to a compromise with it. Long live our 2nd amendment. Not ignoring the constant attack it is under.

Re: Corrosive M2 ?

Yes, it is 30-40 Krag I use to have a rifle and sold it too cheaply and stupidly. The only thing I see as a date is on the box and it displays as 8-30 on the box cover, lower right. Possibly August 1930? Here's the headstamp. http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1310/13758252/24855536/414407910.jpg Than...

Re: Corrosive M2 ?

Thank you all! It is in nice condition and will not be used in a Garand. The only problem now is I have so much arthritis in me I don't think I can shoot it unless I drop the load a bit. Is it loaded with IMR4895? It has 50 grains in it and that's the low end of the range on the Hodgden website so I...

Re: Help ID AMMO?

Thank you for the information. I disassembled the ammo this evening and it was a shame. The cases were clean lightly oiled and the bullets pulled without issue even though I used a 30 cal puller. There were 58 grains of a flake powder and a 155-grain bullet. By the looks of it, it was like new ammun...

No.4 Mk1 reare sight?

Is there any chance a rear ladder type sight from a 1917 Enfield will fit a Lee Enfield No,4 Mk1? I want to replace the 300/600 sight for better range of adjustment. Thank you. I asking as a shortcut to doing the work myself to find out :shhh:

Re: So far good! This newbie still has his fingers

The bedding required on a Model 111 is illustrated on youtube somewhere and it is shown that it is important to bend the rear action screw as well as the forward receiver/barrel. If yours has the cheaply made synthetic stock, as does mine, it is a bit tricky but it can be done and is effective. Good...

Re: Annealing brass ?

OLDGUNNER, Thanks very much for the information on annealing brass. Very interesting reading and thought-provoking. I am going to do a bit more reading about it and some experimentation just to see what happens to brass as it is worked. Thanks very much.
