    New Publication on New Zealand Pattern Lee-Enfield Carbines

    New Publication on New Zealandicon Pattern Lee-Enfield Carbines

    Just to let you know, chaps, that there’s a new glossy booklet out on NZ pattern L-E carbines: A Full Accounting of New Zealand Pattern Carbine Production.

    It’s by, if I say so myself, yours truly. It’s published by the New Zealand Antique & Historical Arms Association, and is a successor to a 2014 booklet also published by the NZAHAA. (The 2014 publication was by yours truly and two Kiwis.)

    If you are interested in getting a copy of the new publication, you can contact NZAHAA National Secretary Katrina Evans at irocz28babe@gmail.com. She may have some of the 2014 booklet left too. I’m afraid I do not know the price of either.

    Cheers, all,

    Coggo

    Is the new publication a supplement to the older one, or a replacement?

    Are they different than the excellent article you published a few years ago in Skennertonicon's Collector magazine?

    Are there any copies for sale in the US?

    Thanks! And congratulations on the publication!

    Well done. Nothing like writing about a subject to draw one's attention to how much one doesn't know!

    jc5icon, it (2020) is a supplement to the older one (2014), which in turn was a slightly revised version of the thing that appeared in Skennertonicon's magazine (2012). This time around, there's nothing about shooting the things and nothing about the constables and the cadets using them for years and years, as in the last one. Using the Enfield production records, this 2020 booklet is purely about production minutiae and serial numbers — cracking stuff that all our wives love listening to us talk about. It disproves one theory we suggested in 2012/2014, but proves most of the others. As far as I know, the only source is the publisher, the NZAHAA, through its secretary Katrina Evans (nzahaa.secretary@gmail.com).

    Thanks for your interest.
