In fact both cases empty and live started to pull to the right before hitting the screw. A gunsmith can't get original British military field gauges. How right you are jrhead! I have to manually pick them out. If you use your rifle enough, sometime down the road it will weaken or may break and you'll want to replace it. As soon as the end cleared the breech on the live round and approx.
Enfields have a very generous chamber to allow the soldier to chamber even the dirtiest rounds. I have a Lee Enfield that has recently developed an issue with bulging and rupturing casings, so I have completely stopped shooting it. A gunsmith can't get original British military field gauges. Take the extractor screw out of the bolt head, depress the extractor spring and take the extractor out. I would add that it is more of a ejection problem than an extraction problem.
I'll post some pics soon. So in the process of break down and cleaning for rebluing. Therefore, a weak extractor spring or a clogged extractor can cause weak ejection, as the base of the empty isn't held tightly enough against the channel wall to provide for a more positive one. It is just that it does not throw the brass out of the rifle all of the time. It sat back in my closet and between neglect and the cosmoline, I had a lot of work to do.
I bought an Ishapore in. There is another possibility, which is the throat of the chamber has been shot out, in which case the rifle would headspace correctly, since it headspaces on the rim, but can still have casings bulge at the neck. I never noticed that before. Chamber a fired case, then extract it slowly to see what I mean. What your description would seem to suggest is that the expansion due to firing is sufficient to grip the chamber more firmly making extraction less positive.
Or am I doing something wrong? When I run live rounds through the rifles from the magazine without firing them they eject about 4 feet to my right most of the time. The screw only comes into play when ejecting a live round. Thanks in advance for the help! Or you could just get a field gauge and see if your rifle even has excess headspace or has something else wrong. Agree with all of the above and would add one more bit to throw a little more weight behind the weak or clogged extractor spring theory. Thanks for the advice with the bolt head, guess I will have to find a properly skilled gunsmith. In that case you would need a new barrel, not a new bolt.
If you reload, just neck size them. Long story short I read that replacing the bolt could potentially fix the headspacing issues. Any advice would be appreciated. On every gun forum there is a post every few months where someone says my X gun with original matching bolt has headspace issues because of what his gunsmith said. A true gunsmith is a dying art anyways.
About 15 minutes of lathe and drill press work, I had a twisted wire coil spring installed and machined out a spring keeper. Case head separations and ruptured cases weren't that uncommon even when these rifles were in service. I snapped the extractor spring. Are you using the same ammunition in both rifles - if so what is it? While the extractor would seem to be the obvious culprit but perhaps making sure the chamber is spotlessly clean and trying another brand of ammunition would be worth investigating. It does pull the empty brass from the chamber everytime. I am wondering if this is just a common issue with lee-enfields or do I have an extractor or extractor spring that needs to be replaced in both of them.
At least a pair so you'll always have a spare on hand. If all that works youll have tightened up the headspace, although you could still have a long chamber. Thanks for teaching me something new. I must say this is a weak design point. Maybe that will explain it better.
I strongly suggest before anything else to get a gunsmith with the proper gauges to check it out. That's why there is a hole drilled on the side of the receiver. Because of variations in the manufacturing process, similar products may have differing weights. I do clean the chambers well so I do not think it is that. I discovered that among those brand new springs some were collapsed to a point of not being much better than the bad spring I was replacing. You will have the opportunity to find and choose one in your area before placing your order.
The extractor holds the case tight against the left wall of the bolt channel. Then put the field gauge in, it shouldnt close. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
