    Was searching the Internet on the L42A1 sniper rifle, and came across this Guns and Ammo Review on the L42A1. I have added the link below.

    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 ...

    It's a converted Long Branch that belongs to Gary James. He called and spoke with me just before the show was aired. He bought the rare accessories from me many years ago after we first met at an NRA Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida.

    Thanks for posting.
    Its a shame that when talking about changing the magazine he slips in "from 303 to 308" instead of "303 to 7.62"
    But its another good plug for Enfields.
    Mine are not the best, but they are not too bad. I can think of lots of Enfields I'd rather have but instead of constantly striving for more, sometimes it's good to be satisfied with what one has...

    I caught Dave Fortier's little flub there too Alan and agree whole heartedly. However, I'm glad that they're still giving the old girls rave reviews.
