    [QUOTE=WarPig1976;374292]That's a clever recoil mitigation setup. I'm thinking of something along the lines of Peter's friend, a diorama of a Man of War gun port.

    It actually looks like a SA barrel (the L4 is contoured, not straight) with a L4 flash eliminator. I have a semi auto conversion with the same barrel but with a FAL flash eliminator.

  21. Enfield No2 Mk1** firing pin rivet question (probably for Peter)

    When I was firing my No 2, the firing pin rivet fell out. I found it, and tried to fix it back in, but I think it is too far gone to save. Does anyone have an idea for a replacement or a fix please?
