    My new Jungle Carbine

    So I bought this Jungle Carbine. It looks pretty good, made at BSA in 1945 but the bolt is a different serial number. Was in the midst of cleaning it today but I can't get the firing pin out, stuck in pretty good so its soaking in some LPS 3 overnight, then tomorrow I'll try again. Pics are in my gallery.

    Please don't remove the firing pin unless really necessary. If there's crud behind it, just flush the area with a solvent (WD40 works for me). The pin is sometimes staked/expanded during assembly to the cocking piece. Threads can be damaged during unnecessary disassembly.

    So when should you clean the pin and bolt assy, after a certain amout of rounds, usage, years? I just got backing from shooting mine and it shot great, just the usual amout of "field cleaning"?

    Repeat:: Do not remove the firing pin, if the crud is hard just flush as stated before if it is stubborn I use brake cleaner to flush it out then light gun oil after.

    Only "fix" it if there's a problem. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    That's not the traditional 'American Way'.

    Most seem to 'take apart just to look inside, break something, clean & try to reassemble, buy new parts and try to reassemble', but why ?

    Your way is best !!
    Mine are not the best, but they are not too bad. I can think of lots of Enfields I'd rather have but instead of constantly striving for more, sometimes it's good to be satisfied with what one has...

    All aside, there IS no user cleaning for the bolt in detail, never was. It just needs wiping and oil both inside and out. Just enough inside to keep it moving. Make sure the screw at the back stays tight too...on the cocking piece. Paintbrush or toothbrush around the extractor.
    Regards, Jim

    Wow AdE, ain't that the truth! Lets not forget taking the perfectly fitted and functioning parts and changing them for "correct" factory manufacture parts when the owner doesn't have a clue how to fit them. I've seen it all and will continue to do so I'm sure.

    Well I put a scope on my Jungle Carbine. A Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-16x44 FFP EBR-2A MOA rectical, also Vortex rings and a BadAce Tactical NDT Scope Mount. Haven't shot it yet with the scope on, waiting for a little warmer weather to go to the outside range.
