sure enjoy shooting my C&R rifles,
especially with the cheap military
surplus ammo. But some of this ammo
is over 60 years old and the primers
can be "hard".
We were experiencing a lot of hang-fires
and a lot of no-fires. I begin to
wonder if the old firing pin springs
in the Lee Enfields and Mausers might
be a part of the problem.
So, I ordered some replacement springs
from Brownell's. The original springs
in the Lee Enfields were about 13
pounds. I bought some Wolff replacement
springs that are rated at 20 pounds.
