    National Ordnance A3

    The one I have is serial number 6000034. The few I've seen or heard of have numbers beginning with 5. Has anyone seen a "6"?

    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.

    I just noticed that I've asked this before (but I didn't get a response then, either).

    ArtPahl - Likely the lack of response is due to the privately made National Ordnance receivers being considered poor quality, dangerous, 1970's - 1980's 'knock-offs' of questionable metallurgy.

    There is no historic and little collecting interest in the National Ordnance rifles. The receivers are regarded as 'time-bombs'.

    The main value of a National Ordnance rifle lies in stripping it to salvage the stock, barrel, bolt and other original GI parts.
