I recently purchased a Snider conversion Enfield minus the firing mechanism.
(The spring and pin is gone)

Any source for original parts or blueprints to manufacture parts?

Dixie had been short on parts lately.
They have a few parts but no pin and spring.

Gun parts and Numerich are the same people and they have no Snider parts.

Ret_Marine:

Lodgewood Mfg. in Wisconsin is a very good source of parts for many black powder military firearms - here is a link to their page listing original parts for the P'53 through P'62 Enfields and the Snider conversions (... they also have a separate page listing reproduction parts ....)
http://www.lodgewood.com/original enfield.htm
Scroll down the list to near the bottom, where you'll find part #SN-52 ("Firing Pin, Snider-Enfield" for $10.00) and, right at the bottom, #SN-52S ("Spring, Firing Pin" for $5.00) ... :)

By the way, THE forum site for all things to do with the world of the Snider-Enfield, Martini-Henry, and all other things related to obsolete British firearms and militaria, is British Militaria Forums -

While GunBoards is certainly one of the best firearms forums on the internet (I am a member and daily visitor), as a new Snider addict (.... Warning: more Sniders, if not Martini-Henrys and other exotic British Empire smokepoles, are likely to follow your first acquisition .... ;)) you should sign up there as well!

I have since purchased the parts from Lodgewood.

They are excellent to deal with.

I give them my highest recommendations.
