    Nicely spotted AD-4NA.
    I incorrectly picked it as the more common 1/32" longer, trainer varient of the snub nose, SOE, trials short-short rifle, for the Marquis Para Brigade's, cycling mountain artillery unit.

    No surprise it sold in 5 minutes. It would be a bargin at twice the price.

    Ah yes, the infamous SShtLE, or SSMLE as I should say after the 1926 nomenclature change. In addition I believe paratroopers as well as the Armoured portion of the Andorran Parachutist sniper Volunteer Regiments used some of those at Normandy after having salvaged them from Dunkirk before the rifles were shipped overnight to the Flight Officer's Underwater Frogman's Battalion for the invasion of Japanicon.

    Close, but as we agree, the listing was not a Short, Short, Magazine Lee Enfield. And finally I must say both of these are much more rare then the Long-Magazine, Lee Enfield that seems to puzzle many people but clearly preceded the common SMLE and the aforementioned much rarer SSMLE.

    I have one of the much more rare "Type LCVIVXXIIII.432/C-3" versions of the SSMLE, to use a collector's term, and it is the highlight of my collection:
