    SMLE no.1 ejector

    Morning lads, shot my lee project for the first time last night and it kept having failure to eject with cartridge stuck in the breach. Upon closer inspection side by side with another lee bolt it looks as if the ejector has seen better days. Looking for a replacement or three.
    Cheers.

    Quick fix swap bolt heads as long as they are the same length. Headspace in the Lee is controlled by fitting longer or shorter bolt heads.
    Someone Here had boxes of stuff, find the post and I'm sure your dreams will be realised.
    Interesting sighting system it's got, is anything special planned as an upgrade?

    Strange looking result. What was your reason or purpose in departing so far from the original design?

    I swapped ejectors with my no1 mk3 because it very rarely gets used.
    I purchased this rifle already sporterized so wasn't too worried about hacking it up a little. It never had sights on it so need to figure out what I'm going to do there otherwise it's a neat wee obrez inspired shit stick
