Did this video help you?

Matt Boudreau: What exactly did you have in the butt-stock compartment again?

Clint Wilcox: Thanks for a super helpful video, I have needed to repair a buttstock for some time and this was just what I needed to see how to do remove it properly. Great job!

Andrew Gagnon: what is the part that you insert the stripper clips into on top of the bolt called? I have a 1918 Lithgow but somebody sporterized it and removed that piece. I am trying to find it to replace it but don't know its official name.

DayZwTrizzo: Cheers mate! Be needing this soon

brian wagers: do the Ishapore 2A1's have two piece stocks like this to? if so then doesn't that mean you can't fit a one piece stock on it? theirs synthetic ATI stocks that are just one piece stocks for No1 MkIII .303 .308 so i figured it would fit mine. if you have an Ishapore 2A1 would you plz do a disassembly for it? i see alot of ppl with 2A1's that are as confused as me.

24GordonFan223: just a note, i've found on the #4 enfield it's easier to check the sear/trigger alignment after you snug the 2 screws on

3sporks: This helped me out tons! Too bad I didnt see it when I dissassembled mine... Good lord did I ever lose parts and broken screws.

Logan Gabriel: Where's the VEGEMITE!!!!!!!!!! LOL

rossaust: @Bidimus1 1/19 is month/year manufacture. Likely that despite parts (receiver, barrel etc. being labelled 1918) it was not assembled till January 1919. May have other markings on butt, such as a Lithgow Shield and Model number, (I note mine are faint). CMF and 3MD markings are post WW2 of course.

thumperpaul: Very well done! I was wondering why the trigger pull on my "Sporterized" '43 (Longbranch) No.4 Mk 1* was so sloppy, and after watching your presentations, I found that the kingscrew was only finger tight. (as well, the buttstock was loose). My groupings have improved exponentially, thanks to you! I am looking to restore my No 4 to "era orginal" condition, and now I know what components I am looking for. Kudos to you mate!!! Awesome collection of rifles you have!

RabbitusMaximus: Thank you for this video, mate. I just used it to complete some work on my 1922 Lithgow. As the man said, how wonderfully complex...er...I mean British..... I loved it. (Just kidding 'bout the british...I still have a 41 year old Perkins diesel that runs forever as well!. Again, thanks,...it help me as I tightened up the sight protector ears on the rear....

MrToadland1: cool beanz

gordon2089: Is it possible to replace the front handguard without removing the nosecap?

pigwigpa: how wonderfully complex... I mean British. Who I'm I kiding .I want one!

biggzyboys: great vid ,but may i ask why are u puting new stocks on to it is it to make it look more original with that finish on it ,keep the vids coming

aabceacba: We all know that we Americans modeled our Springfield after the Mauser,....with the exeption of the caliber and other details, it was for the most part, a copy (hey, Germany makes great guns). But from my point of view, we probably would've been better off coppying the Lee Enfield rifle (in terms of the bolt design, and ammo capacity) . Don't get me wrong, the Mauser is a fine rifle, but from what I've heard, I would've chosen the Lee Enfield. Just a thought... Which do you think is better?

KrazedGerman: I would check as many aspects as I could first. When I got my Enfield at a Bob Pope gunshow, it cost $220, bargained cuz my dad had bought from the guy before and is friends with him. Most if not all Enfields I've seen run around that price or higher.

Stick1370: I need to take my rear sight leaf off. Is it just pinned in at the front or is any of that threaded?

Eric Gibson: thanks a bunch, my Enfield will be getting a thorough cleaning come summer.

madmantxtx: I also have a 1941 Lithgow. Fantastic rifle.

yo momma: and then you get to re-zero it. oh joy of joys :D

Leigori: Haha... with the nose cap, as a certain Youtube Gun loving New Zealander would say "Use some brute force and ignorance."

Joel Ryan Music: Is it possible to have the Fore-Stock' and 'Front-Hand-Guard' end at or immediately after the 'Outer-Band' (exposing more of the forward part of the barrel) ??? Joel

ebatrakom: I've got one of these rifles, a dispersal one to be exact. I'm experiencing problems with its headspace and need a longer bolt head. Do you know where I can find one?

TescoVee: Good stuff! love the Enfields

shootershit2: that damn bird at 4:20 scared the crap out of me

bones020694: seems like a complicated rifle...

stefanmckinley: That sounds about right, but the price also depends on the condition. I found a 1916 rifle for $200, the action was still in working condition, but the furniture was ruined.

charlie pidgeon: how do you take off the bolt on a mark 1 No 3 lee enfield as i need to clean the rifie

stefanmckinley: I dont remember exactly, but I think the frontsight is integral to the barrel, the rear sight is attached with a screw, but i would think it unadvisable to remove unless you had a problem or a new/better sight.

COUNTRYSIDE ISURGENT: nicly done..

Nate Quickmire: Great videos man. Thanks for posting so many, and on such a variety of enfields. I'm hoping to start my own collection here in Canada and these are very helpful in my research on what I want to get (or rather what I want to get first). Keep it up mate, cheers.

Paleopipes: I wonder if you might be able to help me. I have a B.A.S.Co, Sht. L.E. 1917. I pulled the bolt all the way out, which I've done several times previously for cleaning. Putting the bolt back it will go forward but will not lock. All the vids I've watched seem to have a lever to push but my rifle doesn't seem to have one. Any ideas what may be wrong?

serekithegreat: Way kewl. Thanks for the post.

PimpLenin: I also wanted to add, awsome jacket. 5th USAAF!

AMCer: $80 is DIRT cheap! The only thing to possibly worry about is that they may be Khyber Pass copies and are dangerous to shoot.

gmoore9449: Thank you so much for these videos! Not only did I get my No. 3 MkIII taken apart in a jiffy, I also got it back together again. And it works! Nine out of ten, sir!

Charles' Milsurp Firearms: @aabceacba Also, the Mauser 98 is a newer system than the LE, and everyone wants the newest. The Mauser 98 is mechanically more reliable. With the dawn of MGs and mechanized warfare, the rifle plays less of a role. The Mauser takes a bit less time and money (I think) to manufacture. Also, only the British Empire used the LE. And the Brits were recently bloodied in South Africa by the Boers who were armed with Mausers. Also, most other countries had adopted Mausers and were very satisfied.

dottaz: Grazie zio!! mi hai risolto un bel problema, continua così.

aabceacba: @something01992 Very interesting, thanks for the info.

TheBlackSpider82: Great vids mate!! =)

BLDiddybop: The tapping to get the wood stock from the receiver was my key to dissassembly. I've added a S&K scope mount to mine and am going to use it for hunting this year. Thanx for posting. It was very helpful.

Phaux Redtail: nooooo you forgot to add the sling D: I watched this just to see how it's done

aikalim87: @charliejamespidgeon Take a look at part one - draw the bold all the way to the rear, then turn the bolt head to the left, away from the rail. It should just click off.

Charles' Milsurp Firearms: @aabceacba I don't have an actual time period correct answer for you, but I thought of a few reasons. An external magazine is exposed to damage during the battlefield, 1 more thing to go wrong. Also, why make it detatchable if you load by stripper clip? The LE action is weaker than that of the Mauser, .30-06 is loaded to higher pressures. The Mauser 98 action/bolt is also much safer than a LE. Also the .30-06 cartridge is much longer than the .303 and would require a redesign of the action.

mofert: I love the Lee-Endfield, in my eyes the best rifle of the second world war

ronevsorg: Not different at all with respect to disassembly. I use Circa 1850 furniture stripper to remove all of the layers of gunk and stain...this product seems to work quite well on gun stocks. After that I tend to use a damp towel and a clothes iron on high/steam to raise the grain and get rid of any dents. I saw on a website that running the wood through a dishwasher can really clean and raise the grain but I haven't tried this. There's a lot of info for milsurp collectors online. Have fun!

willembrock: a very interesting and useful video...thank you for sharing it!

WILSON!: I was recently given one of these Enfield .303 rifles. I really like it so far. I was thinking about re-blueing it, but wasn't sure if the original was blue or black. Do you know by chance?

yerchedmad: I have a No 4 Mk1 but here in Canada, after the war, they all sporterized the No 1 Mk3 and No 4 Mk1 for civilian use. (Removed the front wood part, leaving the barrel naked) and im working on puting back the original parts. Thanks for this vid, will be useful.
