My point was just to acknowledge the dangers of an overcharged  cartridge using my experience only shamu. No more, no less...

Since many of you have traveled the road of parts replacement and SMLE disassembly, I will pose an issue. This same 2A1 requires replacement of the extractor and spring.
Parts headed my way.

BUT-I do have a VERY stubborn extractor screw, and my thinking is that the original extractor spring may be exerting pressure on the screw shaft. The screw slot is starting to get burred, and it's time for second opinions.
Enfield experienced gunsmiths seem almost non-existent here in this area.
