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.

Enfield Sighting Procedures

#1 Post by ffuries » Mon Jul 10, 2017 4:39 pm

Before the "Great SRF Crash of 2017" there was a tutorial on sighting the Enfield rifle in. It was quite informative and detailed. Now obviously it's MIA like the rest of the information. Anyone remember it, or perhaps did a copy and paste and saved it? I intended to copy and paste it into a word document to use at the range, but I never did it. Now I would like to have it, as I have brought my Enfield out to the range twice, and since I am getting the hang of it would like to take it to the 300 yard range and put her through the paces.

Do you need the ladder target as well?

I'm not sure, but it "could" be due to Photobucket" having new procedures and upping the ante in fees to support online forums. If the old article did have the "pics" hosted from Photobucket your symptoms seem right on, as I recognize the error message.

For the time being it seems we seem to be hosting pics/images through our own software, and as long as the storage last will continue.

Admittedly the last time I looked at the sticky on how to post images it was not geared towards the normal user, but one more advanced in forum software.

Yes, I sent these directly from my HDD, but if you go to a site like "Imgur" it works the same as photobucket used to. (for now at least)

If I am remembering correctly there was input either from a Canadian Armorer or the procedures were written by a Canadian Armorer and copied to the post. It was a pretty detailed procedure. I went through both computers and my back-ups from the last year with no luck, so I didn't save it as a document.

It was posted last year around October or so, as it was after I took my 1943 No4 Mk1 Enfield out to the range for the first time. I remember posting along the lines that these procedures were posted after I took the "Ole Gal" out to the range.

Brought only a few rifles that day, the 1943 No4 Mk1 Enfield, a 1942 M91/30, 1956 Romanian M44, a 1946 MAS 36 and a 1890 GEW 88. It was a de-stressing day for me, still had extended company (4 months) and the wife's Jeep died the day before 120 miles from home (Lost compression on some the cylinders). So I went to the range on 01 Oct 2016 to de-stress and kill some evil paper targets.

I'll have to check later with my computer, the files although PDF, change to PHP or something on my phone for some reason.
