    Hi Nick, Thanks for those, do you have the buffer? If not, I have a relic one that looks like it should match quite well, it has a coat of primer on it, I've no idea why original owner did that. I recognise the trunnion adapter as the normal Spitfire type which leads me to think my adapter is from another type of aircraft and not a Spitfire. Never mind, its still a .303 Browning.

    No, I didn't find the buffer - it was only a couple of feet down and embedded vertically, so the plough probably knocked it off! My profile photo is one of the Hispanos from the same aircraft - oil buffer was at over eight feet down and again embedded vertically - farmer would only let us use a mini-digger, so took some serious work to get them out! Another local farmer had pulled the engine out for scrap in the 50s and was seriously p####d off when we pulled these out, after he told us we would find nothing! Might be interested in your relic buffer - PM me with details please.

    That is a beauty. Can I ask how you got the parts for the gun?
