    Lightbulb Service for L42A1, Enforcer, Envoy and L39A1 Owners.

    Folks,

    I am in the fortunate position of being able to check out the serial number listings for the L42A1, Enforcer and L39A1. As a service to those who own these riflles I am offering to check a supplied serial against the recorded documentation and to pass on what info is available, conversion date, batch size, despatched to, etc.

    I'll monitor this post and answer any queries in due course.

    Cheers,

    Simon.

    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.

    Simon,

    L39A1 UE70 A850
    L39A1 UE72 A1025

    Do you have the highest recorded L39 serial number? I think the highest recorded by Colin in Fultons was about 1214 ish from memory.

    No pressure!
    Mick

    Jeff,

    Rifle H38322 was part of batch number 24 which consisted of 19 rifles. Records show a conversion date of 10th September 1971, on completion it was shipped to store at Donnington.

    Rifle 650, Unfortunately there are no details recorded on your rifle. The serial number is there in the documents but the adjacent columns are blank, sorry.

    Cheers,
    Simon.
