I have an enfield 2a .308 that shoots about 18 inches high @ 100yds. it also has a broken extractor spring. Where do you get one of those? Should I fix it up or get rid of it? At one point I was ready to tie a concrete block to it and throw it in the Ohio! well not really but... Any ideas? - bricklayer

You have to build up the front site. My English friend had the same problem and had a gunsmith install a new front site. It is dead on now.

Don't listen to the above posts...send it to me[:D] Sounds like the sight(s) got banged up. Is the front sight bent, straighten it. Is the rear sight poking up some, bend it back. PS Send it to me

I think it just needs a new front sight. the one that is on it is so short i have to raise my cheek almost off of the stock to be able to see it right. I like my AR a million times better so this one just sits there gathering dust. imagine that... I think i will trade it in on more stuff for the AR! - BRICKLAYER

You can get a taller front sight blade for it. They made different ones. Try Gun Parts Corp. somebody else already posted the link. They had them a few weeks ago.

My Enfield .308 is the most accurate gun I have. It would be well worth it to install a new front sight on it.

Does anyone know what the walnut sporter stocks look like that are listed on the gunpartscorp.com site? I'm thinking about changing the stock and putting a red dot on it. How about one of those scout mounts that replace the rear sight? I don't know - just thinking out loud...... [thinking] - bricklayer

Instead send it to me. I will work with it for 20 or 30 years and send it back. OK?
