    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 ... BDL Ltd. - Specializing in British and Commonwealth weapons Chuck in Denver ...

    Used to be a bit annoying sitting on one when someone else drops the lid, a very smelly rush of wind up between the legs.

    Much more fun burning off the pit though, petrol in the hole and drop a match..........watch all the lids clanging back together.

    I had to look up what a Red-back Spider is. (Nasty bite!)

    In my search I found there was also a popular song in Australiaicon from the 70's that talked about a Redback Spider on an outdoor toilet seat! (ONLY in OZ!)

    Then
    I went back and looked your photos again of the Thunderbox for SALE on eBay!
    (GAVE ME CHILLS!)

    Yep there is one in there for sure as that's their style of web, contrary to belief it may look a disorganized mess unlike the tidy job an orb weaver spider does but the red backs web is highly complex for snaring prey and the spiders ability to zero in on the victim.
    I will not be sitting on that T B.....no sir
