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.

S&S Firearms in the states might have it. Hopefully this link goes straight to the part. It might be for a muzzle loader, but call and ask them if it will work. The metal part has a square female connector to the firing pin with rubber facing the hammer end. With any luck the muzzle loader is the same. I picked up a reproduction ejector spring for a Springfield trapdoor from them for a reasonable price.

Just google up S&S Firearms and look under foreign gun parts, then Enfield, and it should be on the second page of Enfield parts. The price is only $10.

Best Regards,

Mark
