    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 ...

    black powder revolvers

    You have to handle a few different models, see what feels good in your hand. Aovid the brass frame models, steel frame is best.

    i have a 1851 Pietta and Uberti 1851 that i converted to 38 S&W cartridge. The cartridge conversion minus the loading leaver has an excellent balance, better than the Colt 1873 (in my opinion). The 1851 revolvers have a tighter cylinder to barrel gap than most others. The Pietta 1851 has a slightly small size set of grips on the factory models. I change grips alot using the fake pearl and ivory. I also like the 1861 Uberti too.
