Enfield bit needed

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Bit off the cuff,
    Friend of mine (inf, instructor at ATC) asked me on the range the other day, can I fix his Lee Enfield sight.
    It's a deac, he does the re-enactments etc, apparently the leaf sight at the rear won't stay up.
    Haven't had a look yet, would I be correct in assuming that it is a similar arrangement to the leaf sight at the rear of the GPMG?

    If not, where would I source such an item?
  2. There's one somewhere between SE684988 and SE693962 (East side of Blakey Ridge on the North York Moors) if you get really desperate. It's been there for 30-odd years, so there's probably a bit of rust to clean off.

    If you find it, you may want to clear it with mushroom - it's on his flick.
  3. Have a look at VALMONT FIREARMS lee enfield about halfway down on the right - 'plunger and spring' £8 the set - might be what is required.
  4. Many thanks Vasco, will get in into the shop this week for a once over, will look to see if that is the problem.
  5. Well he'll need to let you know which model it is. Frankly for a de-act who cares? Waste of a rifle and he won't need to aim it.

    I dare say we'll find you the part though. :)
