A question for you SMLE...

Just how sturdy is that pull-cord for the Enfields? It doesn't look like it would hold up to a lot of abuse.

I wonder if the Brits carried several of them...just in case.

I've got a '42 Long Branch No4Mk1 myself. I've never been interested in it's authenticity so I've never picked up the pull-though for it.

The older, natural fiber pull through will wear out over time. The end loop was expressly for use by the armourer to pull broken pull throughs out. There are some nylon pull throughs out there that were mostly for the L1A1 SLR, but they will work for the LE and are virtually unbreakable.

I've added a little more info on using the pull through.

I've updated this page again. Added a lot of info from "The Service Rifle and How to Use It"

Yet ANOTHER up-date. Now there is a link to a source of genuine GI issue flannelette for use in cleaning your rifle.

Just thought I'd bump this for grins. Perhaps some of the new folks haven't seen it yet.

I know that this is an old thread but,... Is there a new link or, has someone saved this info elsewhere, because the link is no longer any good. Thanks.

My web page is down due to lack of funds to pay web hosting. I hope to get it up and running soon.
The info is also here;
