Tightening L1A1 SLR Carrying Handle


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I recently brought a deac SLR. The one I got was great condition, bar the carrying handle! It's loose, really loose. Tilt the rifle and it swings about. Is there a way of tightening it up? I would like to replace it with a wooden handle to match the furnature in the future.

 

Thanks,

Will

Is it a plastic handle and wood butt and hand guards? If it is, it sounds correct for a New Zealand pattern Lithgow made L1A1. Theres a number of ways I can think of to tighten it but it may be easier to remove it and 'adjust' the loop of the handle by gentle bending to make it act like a spring.

It is. It has the British Crows Foot Arrow however. Will try taking it off at the weekend. Thanks.
