In search of a Jungle carbine flash hider with bayonet lug and intact sight protector. Any leads greatly appreciated. I have a 1946 Fazackerley barreled action with #'s matching bolt I will be restoring and I also need #5 furniture and barrel clamp. Always in search of #5 parts and pieces so let me know what you might have for sale or we can trade other #1/#4 Lee Enfield parts. Please PM me and thank you.

I did find an NOS flash hider (M47C) but man was it expensive! I paid about what some people pay for a sporter #4 at a gun show! Still trying to get the old butchered one off the barrel but I need to dig out my MAP torch to heat it up enough to melt the solder inside. Thanks though, Bear, I truly appreciate your offer! I haven't forgotten about your serial# search for Maltby rifles, I've just been so busy of late but I will get those to you.

Are you sure its soldered? They were usually pinned with 2 pins & friction fit.

I got the two pins out and try as I might I couldn't remove it so I had to assume it was soldered inside. Could be I am not using the proper tool for the job. Just hammering on it is not good, I may have to have it pressed off somehow? I was thinking of heating it up and tapping it off?

Its supposed to be an "Interference fit" so some stubborn resistance seems normal!
I'd try freezing instead of heat as heat makes things expand! Maybe chill the bore & heat the suppressor? I got a seized bearing of a sidecar that way once. Dry ice on the end of the axle for 15 minutes then hit the collapsed bearing with a propane torch. You could actually hear the *click*as they separated!

Whenever you get time on the serial # info, Canuck. No hurry on that, it is a multi-year project. On the fit of the flash hider, Peter Laidler told me once that they used a press to push it off. They are supposed to fit very tight, like Shamu said. Peter Laidler told me that the armourers used a plate on the bottom that fit the barrel but the shoulder of the flash hider was against it then took a round steel rod to sit against the front of the barrel and pressed down on the rod to pop the flash hider off.

Very good, thank you! I do own a 12 ton hydraulic press I could use for this job. All I would need to do is fabricate the steel plate, etc.
