    British L1A1 EMER Instruction List

    Below is a list of Armourers Instructions relating to the L1A1 rifle, it has been compiled over the past 20 years from various documents and instructions in a search to find the elusive instructions relating to modifications and markings applied to the L1A1 rifle. e.g. firing pin upgrades. This is something that is cover in the later instructions but I want to find the original instruction detailing the conversion from the 1-piece to 2-peice firing pin and the funky markings electo-pencilled onto the Breech Blocks.

    WANTED INSTRUCTIONS
    Any and all in the list below or not listed. A scan, a photo, a photocopy, just something to fill in the missing gaps. The problem is the EMER is a living document and as things were added or corrected the older versions were removed and destroyed, this is very frustrating for a collector that is a little OCD ... well lets be honest, aren't we all a little OCD about collecting.

    Some items might not exist? but I'm hoping some other anorak type person might of squirreled away some instructions thinking those will be handy one day..... Well its TODAY!

    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.

    Not exactly L1A1 but I have some EMERs for the X8E2 floating around somewhere I'll try and dig up if you want to add those to your list.

    That would be great, I was going to do a separate list once I've finished collating what little info there is. Such a shame it ends up being destroyed.

    'The problem is the EMER is a living document and as things were added or corrected the older versions were removed and destroyed'.

    I think this will be your biggest problem. From memory the L1A1 EMER was not ever a very big document as old or now irrelevant stuff was removed. To be honest we didn't view the EMERs much, a lot of the relevant info was in our collective heads, and by my time most the changes/modifications had already happened. The biggest change was when the paper copy was removed from service, generally thrown away and replaced by micro fiche, horrible. Might be some of these lying around?

    What were the funky markings on breech blocks, I cant recall seeing anything funky, but then memory not the best at my age.

    I sold a reprint 1982 L1A1 EMER for many years. I'm out of stock now except for a shop copy. I did enquire to my printer as she has the master on behalf of BBD but she never replied and I've been so swamped that I forgot about it. My apology there. They are a large, heavy document in spiral bound book form, 8"x11"x 1" thick and many won't pay the shipping overseas. That being said, I'll ask again about producing a 4-5 copies and see what it costs now that this posting reminded me.

    BigBadDog; Here's the marking applied to the Breech Block. The 'Christmas Tree' / |


    It indicates the Breech Block has been modified from having a 1-piece firing pin to the new 2-piece firing pin type. I know what it mean, but I would like to see the original instruction detailing the modification/upgrade.

    I did purchase the EMER from, you and it did manage to fill in a couple of the later D117 and D119 instructions

    I would think the May 83 version of D258 would be Issue 3? Issue two is December 79.

    Any chance of a scan or photos of the edition when you have time?
