    No4mk1t

    I saw a like new sniper in the transit chest that is completely matching, including the scope tin. The rifle is an m47c, 1944. The rifle lacks the S51 stamp on the underside of the pistol grip. The rifle is perfect in all other regards, having all the expected markings. How common is this?

    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.

    Very common. The butt was probably changed to fit the sniper.

    While we're on the subject of S51 stamps I have a T that has the S51 barred out. 3 lines thru it. No obvious evidence of it being tampered with anywhere else. All the screws are properly staked and has all the right markings where they need to be. Google has failed me on an explanation.

    & I've got a butt from a very early conversion in which the S51 is noticeably smaller than the standard font. Never say 'always' or 'never' with Enfields!

    The rifle has the "T" on the body side?
    “There are invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions. It is not generally realized to what extent the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons operating behind the scenes.”

    Edward Bernays, 1928

    Much changes, much remains the same.
