    Question L42A1 Barrel Profile

    Trying to build a L42A1 repro tribute out of badly mangled/bubba'd No4Mk1, was wondering is anyone on here has barrel profile drawing/machinist plans?

    Maybe this will help :

    This is for the heavy "snakeskin" type.
    Overall length from where barrel mates with
    receiver to the muzzle=26.75 inches
    Diameter at this point is 1.230 inches
    Length from where barrel mates with receiver to beginning of first "step" in barrel= 1.172 inches. Diameter at this point is 1.140 inches
    Length of first "step" in barrel= 0.365 inches. Diameter at end of step is 0.956
    Here the barrel resumes a slight taper to a point 1.250 inches back from the muzzle. This is where the front sight mount is mounted to the barrel. The barrel for the L42 gets a military type sight base, and the Envoy/L39 gets a simple dovetail.
    At this point barrel diameter is 0.791 inches.
    At the muzzle of the barrel the diameter is 0.767
    Using the below drawing (from shaw barrels) the dimensions are:
    A= 26.75 inches
    B= 1.230 inches
    C= 1.172 inches
    D= 0.365 inches
    E= 0.956 inches
    F= 0.767 inches
    G= 0.791 inches

    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...
