    Belgian 1889/16 carbine.

    The 1889/16 Belgian carbine arrived today. All matching, original cleaning rod. Has been duffle cut, seller claimed it was brought back in 1945. Goes well with my Belgian 1889 Germanicon capture. Have a look!

    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.

    Anzac,

    Just saw your old post. I have a similar Belgian Fortress Carbine. How do you confirm that it is a 1916 model? Are these rifles ever marked with the manufacture date anywhere? Thanks

    Neat, I find it very interesting that this particular rifle has a 100m setting as most military rifles of the day started at 200m+ (more often at 300-400). Thanks for sharing.

    Oh man! What a stupid place to make the cut - it will have ruined the fit of the system in the stock cut-out.

    I can't find a Belgian rifle to save my life. Seem to be quite rare in my area.
