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.

Bad extractor cut on an Ishapore 2A1?

#1 Post by Skeet792 » Mon Jun 10, 2019 5:05 pm

Long story short, I ended up with a whole bunch of spare 2A1 Enfield parts, and decided to pick up a barreled receiver and put together a complete rifle.

It took me a little bit to get to it, but I noticed that there's a circular ridge inside the extractor cut, which I haven't ever seen on any other 2A1s. The bolt won't close with the extractor on due to the blockage.

I'm assuming this is no good, and maybe this was some way India marked them for Drill Purposes? I suppose I could try to hit it with a file or a dremel, but I really don't like that idea too much.

Anyone seen something like this before?

included a picture and circled it in yellow.

Hard to tell from the photo, looked at mine and the cut is tapered down away from the chamber. A little clean up couldn't hurt. Try a little at a time.
