    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). Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ... BDL Ltd. - Specializing in British and Commonwealth weapons Chuck in Denver ...

    Not a scope can, but I just picked up a SA No. 15 chest originally paired with rifle K34295 and scope 18317. If you have her drop me a note for a horse trade.

    According to my quite extensive records for telescopes I've worked on since the year dot or certainly when pontius was a pilot, Scope 28077 is (now) fitted to a rifle 33525 and is now owned by Lloyd Brown. He says(?) that it's original, but clearly it's not quite original if Navyshooter has the original softee-case

    Well, sitting here in front of me I have:

    RIFLE
    P34017
    SCOPE
    28077

    Case Stg Tel
    No.8 Mk 2.
    OS 2578A
    F Ltd.

    If he's interested in a swap or something, the case is not original to my load-out, so I'm not attached to it if there's an equivelant one that's for offer.

    You don't get any more authentic than that! Where are you Lloyd Brown. Get in contact with Navyshooter.

    This is going to be the trouble for years and years to come N-S. Complete kits being made up and 'all original' until someone comes along with the true originals and then...............

    If I hadn't locked myself out of my safe for 3 months this spring, I'd have brought the scope over to Bisley with me (I was with the Canadianicon Forces team this summer at CENTSAM) to get it checked over at Fulton's.

    Here's the repository of photos I have on the web right now....I can get more detailed later if desired.

    Anyone out there own rifle 30124. I found the No8 scope tin in a dusty old cupboard recently complete with the eye caps tucked up inside. No telescope number on it though!
