    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.

    Very nice gun!!!
    I had the StGew57 and loved it, but I'm not a "semiauto" guy, so swapped it for a Finnishicon Mosin...
    But that is a real piece of art!
    Congrats!

    I hope you are going to put in some range time with this beauty.

    That is the only way you will really appreciate these rifles.

    Recoil is "weird" but gentle.

    Accuracy is impressive.

    Spare magazines can be disturbingly expensive.

    Caveats?

    NEVER, EVER fire steel-cased ammo from one of these. The "delayed blowback" system does NOT like it and nasty things can happen when cases do not "stick" to the chamber wall for the required time.

    They also have a VERY short "leade / throat". Brass that is longer than Mil-Spec WILL wedge in the leade and the resulting over-pressure will do wicked things to the rifle.

    Easy to clean and service, but keep a close eye on all the "fiddly bits" in the bolt head. Spare parts could be a bit of a challenge.

    Other than that: lucky you! Now enjoy and appreciate your treasure!

    Thank You for your suggestions.

    I only fire steel case ammo from SKS & AK rifles.
