Ole British 303 assistance needed...

Ole father inlaw gave me his sons ole British 303 ...."5,No4 MK1"s/n 77054xx...It's been sporterized(no collector value that I can see).....and NOT cleaned in years,so it's apart on the work bench getting a make over ......the extractor claw spring is gone so I need to find a replacement spring for the extractor(anyone have one for sale) .....other than that the bore looks good ,and I should be able to hit the barn door from the inside once it is reassembled .....the forearm has a crack which is being glued up currently ... I cleaned up his 303 Jungle carbine also ( I went thru a bazillion patches) getting this gun cleaned,but it's all original .....kinda of a neat weapon....

see ya BB34

Try asking over at Gunboards in the Lee-Enfield Forum:

Try Numrich, or for parts. As usual, Gunbroker and Auction Arms are also good places.

Springfield would be a good bet as well.

in my youth seen many deer killed with the 303.
