Relic acquisitions - Donations to the War Room :)

Article about: Hi all I have received a few items from friends that I'd thought I'd share with you. Some of these have come from a person with no interest in WW2 or anything military, but spends most days

    Hi Tony,

    The Original Bolt for the Mk1 and Mk1* had small lugs so the dust cover could clip onto the bolt. When the charger bridge was fitted to the CLLE conversions, the small lugs had to be ground off as they contacted the charger bridge and prevented the bolt from being closed.

    Duh! Well spotted, I should have noticed that!

    Pretty stupid really, especially as I shoot a Mark I* complete with dust cover!

    Cheers

    I put together a few photos of bolts to help relic hunters ID their bolts.

    Left to Right

    L59A1 (DP No.4), Lee Enfield No.4, Long Lee Enfield Mk1 & Mk1*, CLLE, No.1 MkIII Early and No.1 MkIII Late.

    Long Lee bolt without dust cover (Note the groove at the rear where the dust cover locked into place, this remains on the CLLE converted bolt).

    Fantastic picture reference M3. Many MANY thanks.

    That's being printed out for sure AND taken to the army dump when we next go

    Must be nice having mates detecting and giving you their finds! Lucky you!
