    SMLE of almost any kind.
    Lithgowicon or BSA of WW2 vintage.

    Cheers

    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 ...

    I want a Mk V Trials Rifle...

    ... but I would settle for a really nice looking Lee Metford with a beautifully sharp rifled bore.

    I had a Lithgowicon No.1 MkIII in near new condition back in the 60's and let it go when money was needed. I would very much like to find another one but have been spoiled with the memory of the one that got away. Those that I see now being offered look like they have been drug down the road.

    I've had a pretty lucky run. When I went looking for my first trainer, I scored an all original matching Patt14No1 .22 trainer for less than the going price of a No2 MkIV. Then a Lithgowicon No1 MkIII* HT 1/1. I thought my luck was all used up when a No6 was offered to me at a price I could afford on the day.

    I suppose I should be on the lookout for a No4 Mk1 (I don't own any) of Britishicon origins, but I think a No4T would be nice.

    Just added a pic of my Lithgows (except the Highmount HT)

    My holy grail would be a smle III or III* in good condition, good enough to shoot regularly at the range, then it will be my favourite gun because it will be my first. I like the look better than the later guns.

    Nice group shot there son.
    I haven’t seen a Slazenger .22 Hornet before. Are they common in Australiaicon?
    How about a few details on the one at the top with the bipod?

    I'd love to have a Mk I SMLE in as issued condition. Since I'm dreaming, unit marked to the Scots Guards!
