    I'd do the mods to the mag well in the body and fit an Enfield Pattern magazine. The Sterling mags are OK and can be adjusted to feed but ejection will never be positive as the ejector was a separate...

    If memory serves, the numbers you're referring to are assembly numbers. You'll find them on the fitted original component parts. It's not a serial number.

    The military specification is that the blade shouldn’t be moved past flush on the base either way. If it is past flush for zero, it needs to be checked out.

    The best grease I've found that sticks and stays there is Permatex Super Lube Multi-Purpose Synthetic Lubricant With Teflon. Bruce Dow in Florida told me about it in the late 1990's or early 2000's...

    The one I have is marked on the left side of the Knox with the small "LB" stamp. It has the Dominion of Canada proof and small "C-Broad Arrow" on the right rear of the Knox. The flat has the number...

    Most dealers in the USA are aware of the penalties if caught shipping any kind of firearm components cross border. Even pins and screws must be lodged first with Customs and Border protection and an...

    Rob, I doubt they're mixed in with the RFI barrels but they may have some used ones. I have a Canadian made SMLE replacement barrel stashed that was in the load of parts I bought from Graham at CanAm...

    Supply and demand. I don't think ammo has anything to do with it. To think of all the bitching about prices I heard when I had beautiful No.4's available in bulk for $350 or so! I don't hear those...

    He admitted to loading it hot. Maybe he even exceeded the pressure of a M118LR but that was the load he was working towards using the 175 SMK. I think he learned his lesson.

    Almost forgot. If memory serves, the test that Peter Laidler did was on 11 assorted 2A and 2A1 rifles that were at the HQ, SASC. The bodies were only tested for Rockwell hardness and all tested the...

    Here are the specs for checking headspace on the RFI 2A/2A1 in caliber 7.62.

    Do not fire these rifles with anything other that 7.62 NATO ball or an equivalent as Bindi...

    That's interesting about CBI considering I sent them cut front half SMLE bodies with the breech rings intact from ALL the different manufacturers just after the No.4 barrel project was complete....

    The only barrels banned since 2005 for import to the USA are genuine military surplus barrels. Commercially made barrels with invoices are no problem to import.

    People have been sending them here hand over fist so I'd guess they have them in stock. Heading to the Post Office to ship two completed SMLE's back to the owners now. It pays to call and ask. Those...

    The one I have has a standard No.4 magazine with no modifications. The serial number stamped on is from the L59A1 serial range but not matching to the rifle.

    I bought a dozen or so from Navy Arms back in the mid-late 90's. They were cheap at $59 each if memory serves. I cleaned them up a bit and sold them for $100 each. All were in decent shape and I did...

    1. I always cut the angle on the block before I glue it in. Obviously leave it proud so that you can fit it tight by carefully shaving it down with a sharp chisel.

    You aren't rude Steyr Man. To be honest, even thought the pistol only has 10% or less original finish, if the markings hadn't been defaced with the sharp edge of a file, I would never restore it....
