This is a good one for you Jack.. Ive got a Parker Hale replica enfield P1858. The bayonet lug is about a half inch too far forward.. How are these lugs attached to the barrel? I cannot see any brasing material beneath it. My first thought is it is D/T and the screw hole welded up and filed smooth.
Customer wants it moved back a half inch or so so his sword bayonet will clear the muzzle at the guard.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
