Re: Yugo bayonet lug replacement

I checked all the usually places and I can't see any for sale. I would put a wanted ad on the SKS forum and monitor eBay. I think those are you best bets at this point.

Re: 1943 Lend-Lease ammo

There used to be a guy that brought tons of old surplus ammo to gun shows. He always had surplus .303 for 10 cents a round. I was foolish and only purchased $20 at a time from him. Most of it was WWI dated and cupro-nickel. Also had a bunch of WRA 1943 dated mixed in. All of it went bang and I have ...

Thanks for taking the time to re-post this. I hate to think about all the items that were lost on the previous board.

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 s...

Alan,

Since you're a member of the milsurps forum, maybe you can get Badger to let you correct the misinformation.

Re: Want to know more about my Ruby and making it functional

Several YouTube videos on how to take them apart. Parts are difficult to find and most have to be fitted or made. Numrich has some parts.

Had to make a firing pin for mine. Here's a basic parts diagram.

Re: Enfield SHtLE 1 Mark 1 Rifles

Great looking rifles! Thanks for posting. I purchased a 1907 BSA MK I*** about ten years ago. I was asking around on a forum about the sliding charger bridge and a fella offered to sell me one for $30. I purchased it. At the time I had no idea just how hard they are to find. I wish you the best of l...
