    Jim,

    I was thinking to put the long piece in my vise and then try to bend the shorter piece, with the slider, into place. Thanks, Randy

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  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.

    Yes, protected jaws and all... I would likely use a 15" crescent wrench for the bend. That way it's slow and controlled?

    I hope I'm misunderstanding both of you. Using hand-held wrenches is not the way to fix this!

    I'm serious. Been there, done that - on an Enfield No1MKV backsight. Please do NOTHING until I've had a chance to post a sketch for you.

    It's very late here (11 PM) so give me a chance and wait 24 hrs!

    I repeat - I'm serious!

    Patrick

    Is the slider jammed? Probably. Please reply a.s.a.p. as that partially determines what I need to write/sketch - the first job is to get the slider free.

    No, I was serious Patrick. I've done it before too... But I'm up for your method...lets hear it? I've not worked on a "T 18" before.

    Sorry Jim - I was a bit alarmed by seeing the word "wrench". I hope to be able to compose a picture story this evening.

    I half expect by next time we hear, he'll have it straight.

    Good Morning All,

    Sorry for the delay. I had ta plane trip from hell last night with an additional 6-hour wait at Miami heading to LA. The slider is jammed with absolutely no movement all. Thanks, Randy

    ---------- Post added at 11:13 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:09 AM ----------

    As to the large Action Bolt. Thanks to Frosty/Brian who removed the bolt from his T-Gewehr and sent me the measurements. What I still need is the thread pitch. We still hope it will be found by the seller but I do want to get all the details for making a new one. Thanks, Randy

    Straightening a backsight ladder - Part 1 the bend and jam

    Keep watching Randy - maybe this will cheer you up after your flight

    As I wrote yesterday - here comes a picture story. It's one of those cases where pics say a lot more than thousands of words.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    As I expected - the slider is jammed on the ladder. Why? Well, it will have happened something like this...

    This is how your sight ladder looks now:


    This is a representation of how it should be. The small clamp is a stand-in for the backsight notch...


    This is how it was bent...


    This is why it is jammed...


    ... the bends will have appeared at the ends of the slider. If you now try to force the slider back, it will be FUBARed

    The next part will reveal how to straighten the sight. Stay tuned - or maybe make a cup of coffee while I continue to compose?
