    My Remington 03-A3 Drill/Parade find

    Bid on it at a local auction, kind of a impulse buy but I couldn't resist the 03 at $33.00, even though its been demilled, plugged and is basically a paperweight I had to do the paperwork for it but its a toy I just couldn't pass up. Plastic stock, chromed up, normal parts that snag and cut were taken off. Serial shows it was made in Aug. 43. May make a good looking lamp;o).

    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.

    Restore it to shooting condition. You got it for almost nothing.

    Here's how mine came out.

    That is one nice restoration. If my receiver wasn't carved up like a left over pizza I would definitely attempt it
