Enfield



I have an Enfield Mk4 which I love. However, I bought a case of surplus ammo. Talk about hang fires! You pull the trigger and wait about 5 seconds and then BANG! Has anyone else had the same problems with surplus ammo in this gun?

hang fires have nothing to do with the gun, its all about the ammo. where is the ammo from?. how old is it?. does the container it came in have water damage?. The biggest thing with the Enfield rifle is whether the firing pin is too short.

I know it must be the ammo. It was surplus stuff from the 50's. I bought a new box of Sellier & Bellot and no more problems. I did check the firing pin and you were right. It was on the short side. I had a new pin put in just to be on the safe side. Thanks!
