jaybryd134: have a question for ya, the screw that's in my trigger assembly is stripped any ideas how to remove without having to drill it out
Stig Stigson: Definitely a amateur armourer, rifle must be scratched up after that strip and rebuild. ...
Loren Mitchell: Thanks for the videos. Care to demonstrate how to dissasemble the bolt? Aloha, Loren
H110orWin296: Thanks man! Great video. Now I know how to take my rifle apart after 20 minuets instead of spending two hours scratching my head trying to figure out what the righter of the Army field manual was trying to get across.
pat pelletier: great video, had a good laugh. im like you. oops here opps there, trying not to loose parts lol
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?
Stick1370: I need to take my rear sight leaf off. Is it just pinned in at the front or is any of that threaded?
Toby Rutter: Hi this was so helpful. I want to strip the wood to make it natural any suggestions on what product i should use. Also is there any websites which explain the markings on the stock. I have a MK 3 from 1927.
blackknightzulu: Great Video!!! Do you treat the wood on the Lee enfield rifles with anything?
DayZwTrizzo: Cheers mate! Be needing this soon
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.
bones020694: seems like a complicated rifle...
Phaux Redtail: nooooo you forgot to add the sling D: I watched this just to see how it's done
TheFonz: I also wanted to add, awsome jacket. 5th USAAF!
TheFonz: Again, thanks for posting this video. I got my 1944 Lithgow today and I took it apart and put it back together again, step by step, as I followed your video. Gave it a good clean while it was apart. If I was back in Australia I'd get you a case of beer as payment.
ratagris21: Thanks for pointing out the issue with removing the butt stock without the fore stock removed. I have a sporterized No1 Mark 3, and the stock was loose. I followed your instructions and sure enough I was able to tighten the stock bolt 3/4 turn to tighten and it resolved the problem as well as I cleaned up the underside of the barrel, receiver, and trigger assembly and the forestock. My Mk 3 is now ready for shooting. Any other videos on this or any other fine rifles would be appreciated!
ratagris21: Thanks for posting and sharing this valuable information on how to disassemble the SMLE. I really enjoyed it and learned something new. I would like to see the video where you disassemble the butt stock or addressing a loose butt stock issues would be nice as well.
aabceacba: @something01992 Very interesting, thanks for the info.
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.
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.
