    LIGHT RIFLE PROGRAM: THE FAILURES THThis handy little rifle AT LED TO THE M1 CARBINE

    This handy little rifle came out of the Light Rifle Program that began after Uncle Sam found the M1icon Garand was too much gun for a lot of troops.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction).

    Regardless of the outcomes, the one that was accepted and built turned out to be absolute finest example of American design and manufacturing capability ever done. The numbers just don't lie. No country in the world could have done what the Carbine Program completed.

    I'd like to try out the Auto Ordnance entry. That looks like a handy little rifle.

    I have some photos around here somewhere of some trials rifles.
    Winchester maybe? Can’t recall.

    No idea if they’re authentic/original or not. I need to drag those out and post a thread.

    Really digging that Savage carbine. I think I see some Browning lineage in there. Remington model 8 and 11. Savage made the 720 on the same A5 type pattern so that tracks.
