    Possible "lunch box" liberation by an employee? Just a wild *** guess. It looks too good to be a fake.

    You may be confusing the extractor spring for the SMLE with the one for the No.4. They ARE distinctly different and as you describe.

    The extractor spring is key to strong ejection since it holds the fired case hard against the channel in the left side of the body which guides it to the ejector screw.

    Anyone who wants original,...

    They are the same. If you need some nos original No.4 extractor springs I have plenty. Email to bdlltd@bellsouth.net. Beware the aftermarket springs that are dicey to say the least.

    I don't think so. I admit I've never tried though. I have lots of nos No.4 handguard rings if in need.

    Yep, mrclark303 is correct. British and Commonwealth stores have been surplused already and anything from here on in will most likely be destroyed. I just saw a South African owned Long Branch No.4...

    I keep reloading components inside using excellent condition GI ammo cans. I'm still using some Winchester primers purchased in a bulk deal from the early 1990's with no issues whatsoever. GI ammo...

    Samuel Cummings and his company Interarms were into everything. My post sample L4A3 Bren is one that was FTR'd by them in Manchester for potential resale to countries still using them in the 1980's....

    A simple rule of thumb for adjusting the front sight is that you always adjust INTO the error, not in the opposite direction. If it shoots high, you need a higher front sight. If it shoots low, you...

    I think it will be OK and loosen up a bit with use. Did you use a nos original or new manufacture reproduction extractor spring? Some of the "aftermarket" new extractor springs leave a little to be...
