    Handguard for 1899 Carbine.

    Which hand guard would be correct for a 1899 carbine with the 1901c sight?

    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.

    After a little research it looks like the sight protector type 1901 handguard on all but the later 1899 carbines? The carbine I'm more than likely to get is in the 20k range.

    Sgt - I am not an expert in this area - but herre are a few places to check:
    1- go to a site 5madfarmers.com he has a lot of good info posted on Kragicon Rear sights with good pictures.
    2- There is a guy on the Krag Forum (Krag collector Assoc) who sells nice repro handguards - he has some good pics on the site of which Handguard goes with
    which carbine. Here is URL - Krag (Springfield) Upper Handguards

    You say you are getting a 20K serial number carbine- that is most likely NOT a 1899 Carbine - would be much earlier based on serial.

    Maybe 280K range for a 99, 28K would be a 96.
