    I've never seen hang-fires with it, but I've seen maybe 0.5% misfires (1/200). It's just not worth addressing it. All the matches I shoot with it have plenty of time to make up the shot. The ammo is already accurate enough to win if I do my part. Use a rifle with a good firing pin spring.

    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. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Ah.. okay I understand why you want to go to the trouble. It's interesting, though, to hear others have a lot of misfires. I've not really had issues with Turkishicon ammo, I've maybe had a couple of duds, but no hangfires that I can recall. I do prefer the Greek stuff though
