    I need a Extractor Spring for a Lee Enfield MK 1 3

    The extractor spring on my old 303 British Lee Enfield MK1 broke on me, Does anyone have a spare lying about they do not need?
    Can one be formed a piece of spring wire?

    Found this: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...tail&FORM=VIRE He calls it a temp fix I believe.

    If you havn't already, look at Wolf springs for replacement.

    Most of the tanks are gone and the windows don't rattle anymore. I won't be able to sleep now.

    $20 at Liberty tree collectors. https://www.libertytreecollectors.co...&idcategory=62 They have them for the #4 also and I got one a while ago for a spare for my #5. Back in the 80's when it took longer to receive parts I used a slice of a paper binder clip most of one summer in a #4. Kept the binder clip spring in there well after receiving the replacement spring as it was working fine even though it wasn't as strong.

    I'm doing repairs on a couple and was looking for cosmoline removal tips that won't damage the stock when I found this. If you don't have one yet I've got an extra spring I could send.
