PR0106 2 BAND ENFIELD RIFLE DEFARBED Reviews

Review:

Received the 2 band Enfield the afternoon of June 15 2017 at around 3 p.m. I noticed the original sticker seal had been broken despite being shipped directly from Dixie Gun Works. I read the manual, and have a friend who I have reenacted with during the Civil War reenactments. The nipple of the gun was not tight at all. I had to tighten it down. Gun worked good with test firing first with a percussion cap to make sure there was no obstruction in thr barrel and then black powder only. I then moved to a live round. It seemed good enough. The second round, however, would not go off. I shot three percussion caps, nothing. I learned from my friend that the hole in the barrel under the nipple opening also needed to be cleaned using a sturdy sewing needle. I got that cleared and the second round finally ejected. I then went to clean the Enfield. The two band screws were so tight on the rifle that even with thread lock breaking fluid, the flat head notches were getting wallowed out. I wound up having to vise grip the washers on the end and spend most of my time trying to get the barrel off to clean it. Now I need new barrel band screws and washers because the ones on there was so tight I cannot possibly get them to work anymore. So other than the nipple being very loose, the hole inside the barrel needing cleaning to fire the second round, and the barrel bands being so darn tight I had to break them to clean the rifle, it seems like it will be a good rifle. That is, if I had band screws that weren't so tight that I had to ruin them to get the barrel off.
