Enfield barrel bands don't fit? Mk4# 1 LB

Post by AGB-1 »

I am having trouble getting the front barrel band to close up enough to start the screw.
New wood upper and lower. Suggestions?

Yes the new handguards & forend are slightly oversized to allow for individual fitting. Try carefully sanding the flat bottom/top where they meet, till the band fits. Then (if needed) the barrel channel & receiver bedding areas. Repeat in ever decreasing circles till it's "right". You may need to re-bed a little more elsewhere as well depending on how much fitting is needed.
