British Enfield rifles

Looks like you had some extraction issues with that one.

I need to stop dragging my feet and try to source both handguards for my 1913 built Ishy.

Mack. I have a 1968 model 7.62 purchased from Roses 39.95 around 1985. We would get the Sunday paper with the sales flyers and mama would ask if I saw anything I wanted. She would buy me these cheap rifles and 99 cents .22 bullets. l miss her and those days.

Man I remember those Rose's surplus rifles too. Matter of fact still have the receipts of those 39.99 Enfield's, Mosin's and such I got there. I bought several there in the 80's and still shoot them usually about once a year. I doubt those deals will come back again.

Took some soldiers out to shot these old rifles today. SMLE (Enfield 1914), P14* (Remington 1917) and No.4 MkI* (Longbranch 1944).

Out of 12 rounds, 6 had sterile head stamps other 6 had this pattern around it.

Out of those 6, 3 were misfires and struck 2 more times for no ignition. Pulled the bullets and powder was the old stick cordite.

These are neat old rifles. I have killed a few deer with the old 303's. I reload them with a Lee loader and use .311 125gr SP bullets.
