Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Bought one of these things.

Fits on the end of an Enfield
The No.36 was designed to be used with a discharger cup, replacing the No.23 Rod Grenade system.

The cup clamped to the muzzle of the Lee Enfield rifle. The rifle was held at a 45° angle and a sliding gas vent on the cup was used for range adjustment - 200yds fully closed, 80 yards fully open. There are no calibrated markings, so it was a rough estimate for anything in between.

A special gascheck disk was screwed to the base of the grenade. To use, the grenade was inserted into the cup and the pin pulled. The stock of the rifle was planted on the ground and using a special blank cartridge the grenade was fired. As the grenade left the cup the safety lever would be freed.

This discharged was also used to fire other grenade types as well.

I always liked Enfields. I have 5 or 6 (when my bro died I got his, can't recall how many he had). The earliest is a mk1 no3 (??? the naming convention is impenetrable.) Dated 1912 sorta at the height of empire.

It occurs to me that the laws against having "grenade launchers" affixed to rifles refers to this.

Idiots.

Anyway, the way it works is that you unscrew the part with the hooks a bit until they can freely move. You hook them (the hooks, what else?) into the holes on the front of the rifle then you tighten the fat part thus forcing the angled base against the hooks thus forcing them apart thus clamping the thing firmly onto the rifle. Simple yet elegant.
