Enfield rifles need to be checked for torque on the buttstock screw, trigger guard screws and ensure the foregrip is secure and tight to the barrel. Otherwise they are known for vertical stringing.

A lot of sporterized No.4's with the cut down forestocks have this problem. The relatively thin barrels need the forestocks to keep barrel harmonic correct.

OK, I’ve never heard that mate, but you learn something new every day. Now to try and find the torque setting for those screws, and if there is an order that they need to be tightened…might be easier said than done methinks.

I’ve heard the same Punkin, but I don’t think (and hoping) this rifle has that problem as the mean Point of Impact doesn’t appear to alter after being set.

It seems there are no set torque setting for the SMLE Rifles…they just need to be tight…ensuring certain parts are in place. This makes sense to me as the soldier in the field wouldn’t have access to a torque wrench if he identified a screw that had worked loose.

There are some things that need to be corrected if loose parts are identified. Have a look at the following link for guidance and info…

Enfield Rifles.com

Seems I need to have a look at my #5 to make sure things are tight. I know the forward grip felt a fraction loose when I was cleaning it on the weekend.
