    I have a pair and have seen at least two go on ePay. One out of Alberta within the last year made over $400 IIRC. The previous instance attracted almost no interest for some reason. Believe I paid...

    If the PEM is in original finish with the original markings it is worth at least twice what you quoted for the rifle. If this is one of those German fittings where they polished off the Soviet...

    Tell him to take some photos of the side of the butt with the markings. And if nothing shows up, look with a black light in a dark room.

    Alright, so your lead screw may have been cut down from a windage screw, but not done correctly. That may be all the problem, or it may not be.

    The point about the setting up of the mounts is...

    I know you said this is only for your own interest, but I suspect it would be of interest to many others also, in particular the people whose information you seek.

    Therefore I'd suggest you make...

    As best I can make out from your comment, if you are using a replica "T" or bracket or both, it could be your set up is not properly done so that there is insufficient travel in the lead screw to...

  12. Early optical sights for the Lee Enfield

    This came up in a thread on the Ross rifle forum, but as it relates to the long Lee Enfield, and a lot more, I thought I'd start a thread about it here.

    Ian Skennerton referred in his books to Dr....

    Are the markings the same as in the third photo in my initial post?

    If you don't want to D&T the rifle you will be best off with one of the old Parker Hale mounts that used a thin steel loop at the front and a wedge block against the inside of the charger guide at...

    Yes, it was "limited service" on the Western Front indeed: limited to scouts and snipers. The vast majority of P.14s seem to have sat in store with many, perhaps most, sold off during the 1920s and...

    A "scout" type base has been made and offered on ePay IIRC. A long eye relief scope such as the M8 Leupold might give the lowest mounting.
