    Jenks Rifle Barrel Band

    Good Evening,

    Just purchased a beautiful Jenks Rifle that is missing its front, brass, barrel band/w sight blade. Looking for a gunsmith/craftsman who is comfortable with brass and can fabricate the band. Thanks, Randy

    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 ... BDL Ltd. - Specializing in British and Commonwealth weapons Chuck in Denver ...

    Good Afternoon,

    Back from the range and the Jenks shot very well with its newly made front band/sight. There was a bit of blowback but I got used to it and the musket was in the blak at 50 yards. A .526 ball with 40 grains of 1F powder was just fine.

    Attachment does not show. Photos of your Jenk's Rifle and shooting results would be interesting.
