anyone know thread size, pitch, and shape for Lewis bbl jack

Recommended Posts

Before I drag out calipers and the Machinery's I thought I would ask here... Does anyone know the size, pitch and shape for the threads on the barrel jack used to remove the barrel from the jacket? I have been searching for one for a very long time and have decided to just go the homebrew route. Are the barrel jack for the .303 the same as for the others?


Also, does anyone know where I can get a spud/pipe-type loading handle for the drum mag? I have one of the large, t-handle type but it isn't terribly handy and would like to find one of the smaller ones.

APEX Gun Parts has the original loading tools for the LEWIS LMG pan magazines.



We also have a good number of the magazines on hand.

The brass barrel jack and the associated collar are quite elusive!
I have only ever seen pictures.
A few people seem to have them, but no one seems to make a similar tool.

Here are the pictures I have.

Hope this all helps!
You may want to make a few of these tools!
