    Probably a better option if you are serious about shooting it than a relining job. I just depends on how much hurt your wallet can take. But it sounds VERY interesting! Not many folk have the opportunity to really wring out an 1899 at the range.

    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 ...

    Well the re-lining is out as is any further attempt at cleaning. Apparently there are 3 very fine longitudinal cracks in the barrel. Almost invisible to the eye.

    I was exceptionally lucky last Oct, with the 5 rounds I'd fired not to get a burst barrel.

    Time for a new barrel.

    Maybe so.

    The old one would make for an interesting specimen to dissect.

    My apologies, as I didn't mean a donor barrel as in a Rem-Lee barrel, but as a friend 'donated' a 1-10" barrel blank to my project.

    and no he has no more, but wants to help me shoot it, (soon) as he's in his late 80s.
