    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.

    Thank you.

    Have previously viewed, they only have a butt removal tool, none of the others.

    I would imagine only nominal values for the others. Not a lot of call for them, especially the gas parts tools

    Firing pin removal tool??? was that not just the tip of a round? you only need to push out a solid pin,
    Could it be the extractor removal tool ( there are a few different types, )
    Butt removal tools £30-40 gas plug reamer £20-40 If you need one ( you only need one if you are live firing using the full gas system as the tool is used to remove the burr that is set up in the gas block) by the gas piston hitting the gas plug
    the C spanner value depends on any markings is it an original Fn produced? or a UKicon factory made (marked to Enfield or other) or if its an Armourers made tool, £5- £15 as a collectable

    Hi Skiprat
    Thank you for spotting the senior citizens moment, yes of course I meant an extractor removal tool, doh.
    Thank you for the other info. The C scanner is an armourers made tool, we made quite a few of our own tools.
    The extractor removal tool is not the U shaped one of which there are many variations.

    Thank you again.
