    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.

    Question

    Sorry about hijacking the thread, but I was wondering if any of you had a source for any parts for the 1899. I am missing the ejector spring and have a broken Bolt Head Locking Spring. I will post some picks of the gun when I get a chance. It is the sporter model in .30-40- Serial 101350. In addition to the missing parts it has a cracked stock. I am interested in getting it back into working order-but may not fire it. It has not been fired much for the last 50 years. About 25 or 30 years ago my brother used it a few times and it worked great. The bolt head spring was still good then, and he just held it in the air and shook it to get the spent cartridge out. I am originally from Michigan and the gun has been passed down through the family, so though it probably does not have much monetary value, there is some sentimental value to it.

    Your 7.65

    Your 7.65 is a excellent woods cartridge. I shoot a mod 91 Argentineicon in that caliber and can tell you for a fact it is plenty good for just about anything in north America except the biggest of bears. Hunt with it and enjoy it.

    FTIII, thanks for the feeback. Doubtful I'll hunt with it as time has, IMO, transformed my dad's rifle from "just" a tool into a rare, relatively valuable antique. There are plenty of "lesser," more-modern rifles I can hunt with and not worry about knocking into a tree or dropping in the mud.

    OTOH: My dad, were he still around, would probably tell me I'm full of beans and to take the derned thing out and fetch-up some venison. ;-)

    Best,
    GLM

    What could help keep you closer to your dad than to do just what he would want you to do, go out n fetch up some venison and use this rifle to do it with. A few dings scratches and some carry wear are pretty small in the making memories department.....no? It's your rifle so I would always respect what you decide to do with it but were it me and if it had been my dads rifle you can take it to the bank dads rifle would be with me in the timber looking for a deer, bear, elk or moose.........but thats me. No matter what ya do be sure to enjoy it.

    Regards
    FTIII

    Bolt Numbers My Rem-Lee .303

    Here is a picture of numbers on my bolt. These appear to be assembly numbers as bear no relation to the serial number of the rifle.[/SIZE]

    I agree with you FTIII. I can say that I've never come across a Remington Lee of any type, but I think using it for its intended purpose can't be a bad thing. I agree too, definitely enjoy it!!

    Unhappy Wrong Picture 03/09/2013

    You might have guessed that the picture of the action is my Ross not my Lee. I am on drugs is my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Regards.

    I heard that was going on a lot in Detroit! If I remember correctly, Norma ammo of that vintage was fairly hot, but the action looks strong enough. Thanks for the pics all!
