    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 ...

    If I were a betting man I'd go for the rifle being perfectly genuine & that the list is wrong. It does contain errors; it's probably a typo.

    That's highly likely the case Roger, the problem is, personally I just wouldn't spend the serious money that all L42's go for if it wasn't clearly on the list.
    In my option, you would only have the same issue again when you come to sell it unfortunately.

    I’ll get some more detailed photos of it alongside my others once I’m home this weekend. I appreciate the extra sets of eyes!

    There is a V32750 and a V32754

    No Y variants close.

    My guess is it is a typo on the list.

    I am inclined to agree with the typo theory error because the original list was hand written on some grubby sheets of paper continued on,into an old HMSO exercise book. The sort of thing that you'd find on the out-inspectors work bench. Then transcribed onto what has been copied and passed around

    M37026 Was a discussion with the apparent owner of this L42 a year+ or so ago. If you are still interested, I have some useful information that will be of great benefit to you.

    I seem to recall that the then owner hailed from Staffordshire

    Hi all, I recently picked up L39A1 UE70 A876 from my local shop up here in Canadaicon. It looks like it has had quite a life. I received it with a No8 style butt, PH5C sight, but the front of the receiver is d/t for a scope base. Anybody have any info on this one? I'll try to get some pictures up soon. Thanks in advance everyone!
