    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.

    I just found what I believe is a first production run No 32 Mk 1 HCM Co REG 3958 with original rings and JG mount. The scope is in good condition with original finish but the brass is showing in places.

    I would love to find the rifle for this scope or ANY matching parts. Please feel free to PM me if you have any comments about this scope. I believe it's a VERY rare first production run from the original first contract awarded to HCM circa 1941.

    Nice find Wats6831. It's not my impression that an HBM scope from the 3000 range is that unusual. I had several in the past, including one numbered 3057, which was a bit unique in that it was dated 1941 in the engraved markings. That was apparently dropped for "security" reasons shortly after.

    The reason there are so many MkI scopes around is that there was a post-war refurbishment program that replaced perhaps most of them with later types. I was told by a now deceased surplus dealer in the UKicon who specialized in optics in a very big way, that his firm had bought about 5000 MkI scopes from the MoD during the 1950s and used to sell them for £5.00 each in the case with the mounts. Mind you, £5 was about an average week's wage in 1950 and it hadn't changed much by 1960 from what I've read!

    Much changes, much remains the same.

    Thanks for the information. Considering reproductions of these scopes are going for several hundred USD. Especially considering it was made during the first production run, and no more than 4,000 of these can be existence. I had thought that "early" scopes had an added meaning but sounds like not. From what I can tell these are starting to bring quite a premium. Thanks again.

    No32 MkI William Watson No.1809 seen. This would have been fitted to a trials No.4 originally I believe.
