    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 ...

    Very very nice. I had the sporter for many years and shot it regularly. I don't recall even seeing a bayonet before now. Nice rifle...

    Nice rifle. If you don't have one already, you might want to get "The Winchester Lee Rifle, by Gene Myszkowski. It's not expensive and contains great info on the rifles. This is what it says about your rifle. Your serial number is within the 2nd contract. The 2nd contacted ones had some improvements over the first contract ones and the first deliveries were in August 1, 1898 and to be completed September 27th. It was inspected by Lt John N. Jordon. I have a first contract one, nice rifles, Ray

    Thanks for comments, Ray. Yes, I just bought Gene's book and it's a wealth of information about this rifle. I'm waiting for the shipment information letter for this rilfe from the Cody Firearms Museum and will be interested to find out which USN Base/ship etc received this rifle. Have you shot your rifle?
