    EIC Pattern F Musket restoration query

    Hi,

    I’ve just purchased a pattern F which has a few bits missing.

    1. Front nose cap
    2. Trigger and front sling swivel
    3. Two of the three barrel wedge pins

    I have a replacement front nose cap which is a replica for a pattern 42 musket. Does anyone know how they are supposed to attach to the stock please. I haven’t received it yet and I’m just doing some homework.

    A second question I have is has anyone made barrel wedges before just using mild steel plate, a hacksaw, hammer and file. Looking at the remaining one it looks doable but I thought I’d ask.

    I’m based in the UKicon.

    Thanks!

Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    I have one and can't find any visible means of connection on the outside which leads me to believe that it was a screw under the barrel that holds it in place. It's been a couple of years since I restored mine. Can't help with the rest, mine wasn't missing anything.

    Thanks, I can always epoxy it if the replica doesn’t have a screw.

    You really are challenging the memory. There are the obvious screws on the bottom. I believe there is a piece that goes vertically into the stock and is pinned horizontally. You have to take the lock out to access the pin. I think anyway. Again, it's been years.

    Here's mine from hard to believe it but a little over four years ago, unfortunately, I don't think the photos will help much with your questions: https://www.milsurps.com/showthread.php?t=62755
