    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.

    Garand copied the Frenchicon RSC 1917 action and trigger. ......The M16icon used the French direct gas impingment system... Tokarev copied the French tilting bolt for the SVT. and the 1911 for the TT33...Everything is a copy.....Including the 1903 Springfield....It's a Mauser.... This is not a copy... Gary.
