    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).

    That was awesome!

    That was AWESOME! Of course as always I find myself looking at the cars in the parking lots (grin).

    I wonder the curators over at SA know of this (I did sent them an email) - it would make a wonderful little display for the museum if they just put it on and let it run over and over for visitors. I am going to have to get back there - what a wonderful place.

    One of the other things that struck me was that 1971 looked to be so long ago - I was reminded of watching Marlin Perkins on Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom - and yet it was right before the bi-centennial that seemed so 'modern' in my memory ... It made me start to wonder if we aren't going to start ramping up for another celebration of 250 years - it is only 16 years away. Hopefully the guy in the whitehouse doesn't completely dismantle the country by then ...

    Sorry, I never know where these are going to go either ...

    That was a GREAT video - thanks for sharing.
