The blade is that of a Russian M , mated to a socket that is dimensionally identical to those used with the British Martini-Henry rifle. The cut from severing the M bayonet elbow results in a distinctive shield-like ricasso when the M blade is welded to the new socket. The blade bears the Ishevsk Arsenal bow-and-arrow trademark, indicating that it was manufactured prior to It also has the characteristic screwdriver point. The socket length is 3. This example has an odd shape to the inside of the bridge, as if the rifle’s front sight was off-center, while the outside of the bridge is symmetrical so is not merely damaged or bent.

Firearm of the Week, The Lee-Enfield Rifle No. 1 Mk III / III* SMLE (Smelly)

Posted 19 June – Some of you may know that I’m into Thompsons. What do Thompsons have to do with turn of the century revolvers and M Rifles, you might ask?

They are but I don’t trust NYS so since the mag is over 10 rounds, down south it went.

The line of rifles began in with Paul Mauser Model s and s are basically very similar variations on the same theme. Information on Spanish-made Mausers in the literature is contradictory. Ormond Beach, FL 3. I regularly ship them right to people’s doorstep via UPS, with no. That is absolutely incorrect. Revised April 30, There is NO Federal requirement for sales of these guns to be handled by Federally licensed dealers.

Many of my customers are commenting that they previously had no interest in. All the dealer has to do is log the gun out as: Brady rules went into effect. On that date all post- 1.

I was looking at a Lee Enfield no5 Jungle Carbine,but someone put a peep sight on it If I was able to find an origional sight could I easily replace it myself and restore the rifle to the way it is supposed to be or would a gunsmith have to replace the sight for me?? I can’t seem to see how it goes on the rifle and how hard of a job it might be I sent my evil 10 round Number 4 down to NC with my friend but I have good pictures of it on my computer.

Are you sure the peep sights are not original?

Well it should have it stamped there!

However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one.

K and discretionary e. Nor the evils of the worldwide Islamic Inquisition which — not in the 16th century but now, in the 21st, condemns Muslim apostates to barbaric execution. Instead, aggressive White androphobes of all genders which I can no longer count are decimating the philogynous and egalitarian West. Equality psychos are tearing down the most egalitarian society that ever existed except for initial communist experiments, before they turned bloody.

American Jews, at the apex of the greatest fortune and philosemitic tolerance their long diaspora has ever bestowed on their kind, are busy supporting all the ideologies and policies that demolish their safe harbor and build up their Muslim, Black and Third World enemies. Leftoid masochists and the Christian meek call for returning Hawaii to the Hawaiians and capitulating before a massive Mexican reconquista of one-third of America.

The WWII Savage Enfield

Lee Enfield The Lee-Enfield bolt-action, magazine-fed, repeating rifle was the main firearm used by the military forces of the British Empire and Commonwealth nations during the first half of the 20th century. It was the British Army’s standard rifle from its official adoption in until It is still found in service in the armed forces of some Commonwealth nations, notably with the Indian Police, which makes it the longest-serving military bolt-action rifle still in official service.

The Lee-Enfield rifle was derived from the earlier Lee-Metford, a mechanically similar black powder rifle, which combined James Paris Lee’s rear-locking bolt system with a barrel featuring rifling designed by William Ellis Metford.

We have located a couple of Civil War soldiers of that name, but we are unsure which one he may be.

Wassell Really odd finding a site refering to what you did shortly after leaving school, but at 17 I used to build the trials and scramblers with the Sachs plants. I now run a foundry and at 52 deeply miss those days at Wassells. They were great times. The place closed when the British bike industry slumped.

Given the subject at hand that’s quite a compoliment I’m positive it was in that Dad got the urge to deer hunt. Well, things were more than financially bleak at our house back then but Dad needed a deer rifle. The VFW in my home town would loan out the A3’s they had for parades and funerals but the list was long and they only had like 10 rifles.

So, as was the norm back then the mail order catalogs came out. Obviously this was before the GCA and you could order anything.

The socket length is 3.

A rare and unpredictable phenomenon that can, in extreme cases, cause a genre to become Deader Than Disco. This can happen in a variety of ways. A Deconstruction that successfully brings every single flaw and illogical element of a genre to the fore, discrediting any subsequent attempts to play them straight. A parody even accidental that makes it difficult or impossible for anyone to take the genre seriously again.

Something so incredibly bad that it leaves a bad taste in audiences’ mouths for the entire genre. A particularly ghastly sequel runs the entire concept into the ground by the virtue of being thoroughly derivative. A work so good that nothing else can live up to it.

The M1 was used extensively by U. Most M1 rifles were issued to soldiers, though many thousands were also given as foreign aid to friendly forces. It is also widely sought after by the civilian population as a hunting rifle, target rifle, as well as a prized military collectible. It is available for American civilian ownership through the Civilian Marksmanship Program. History Although designed in , production delayed deliveries to the Army till September Machine production began at Springfield Armory that month at a rate of ten rifles per day, and reached an output of per day within two years.

The problem here is that, unlike silver hallmarking, the Proof House codes were only introduced in and have been only intermittently applied since then, almost on the whim of the Proof Master incumbent at any particular time.

Simla, Colorado Very nice Enfield. The receiver ring is normally stamped just under where the bolt handle closes with the GR Mark and the date of manufacture. Looks to me like this has been buffed or ground off. I’ve seen that area worn down to where it’s hard to read – but it is entirely gone off yours. At least you know yours was made in England. A piece of advice: That requires that the corrosive primer residue be completely removed. Regular cleaning solvent won’t kill the corrosive salts unless the bottle tells you that it is formulated to do so.

If you only use common bore cleaner the bore will still corrode. A second note is that if you decide to reload your ammo, I strongly advize only neck sizing vs. The chambers of most. If you full length size, your cases may only last one or two reloads before they develop a ring or bulge near the case head. I did this so my ammo shoots to the original sight settings for the original ammo.

It’s a good idea to carry a stuck case removal tool in the stock butt trap – I haven’t needed it since I went with neck sizing, but it’s a comfort to have Last chirp:
