Greetings,

I am restoring my dads 1913 Lithgow Enfield serial numbered 240 and I need a Lithgow star marked rear long range volley sight arm.

If anyone has this part and would be willing to part with it I would pay well and quickly for it.

Thanks smerdon42.

Wow serial 160! Any of the 1913 Lithgow in surviving condition is astounding.

I was not aware they make repro Lithgow rear volley arms. Any direction someone has towards these would be appreciated from this yank.

I restore many Enfields eap the No1 Mk1s and have an original EFD rear volley arm however I would like to honor this rifle in all
original Lithgow parts. This has been a project in the making for around 10 yrs now!

Paulster , you can get repro arms at numrich . I was lucky and got several from a few rifles that had gone through a fire and where condemned used them for parts , i have 3 x 1914 lithgows all with different parts on the having gone through repairs at different armories over the years , one was in India 9 they still stamped everything stamped with the original serial ) then one to British army ww1 and ww2 .then i have a 1914 with original parts but was sent to Austrian gendarmerie after ww2 .my 1913 is still marked and sighted for mk 6 ammo no update to mk 7 .
