The barrel needs to be removed on both MK's to fit the adaptor as per insructions. One way round it is to spead the legs to enable them to locate....only trouble with this method is you cant clamp them up tight again once they are fitted The best way is to remove the pins that hold the barrel handle sleeve detent and pull the barrel handle sleeve forward.The adaptor will now go over the barrel and slide into the location grooves on the side of the receiver. The adaptor can now be positioned with the hole located over the mag cover detent (having removed the cover)and the sprung top plate and split pin can be fitted to retain the adaptor ;D
Oi Kev! That bloody photo is just not fair mate! They look rather familiar.....!
Incidental info for our member gerolykos, the last set fo drums that sold that I know of went for a figure pretty similar to that quoted above. They were superb Mk1 drums in the box with adapter and winding handle and even the instruction sheet pasted to the lid of the box. And I want to ensure that the buyer knows I want first refusal if they come up for sale!!!! *wink wink nudge nudge*
