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.

Parker Hale scope mounts on Enfield Jungle Carbine

#1 Post by Landyman » Tue Aug 14, 2018 9:20 am

Hi everyone
good to see that this forum is back !

I own a 1946 Fazakerley Number 5, the details are in the register thread.

My rifle has been fitted with Parker Hale dovetail mounts, one is drilled and tapped with two screws and the second, BB21 is fitted where the rear sight should be. There are witness marks on the mounts to suggest that at one time a scope was fitted to the rifle.

Does anyone know what rings would fit the PH mounts? They appear to be a 17 mm dovetail.
I would like to fit a scope, because my eyesight is not as good as it once was as and I enjoy using the rifle for classic competitions.

regards

Landyman

I have contacted the manufacturer in the youtube video, let's see what they recommend for PH mounts.
