    photos of semi auto pistol

    Some old photos from years ago. The breech and bolt are 4140 steel heat treated to 50 Rockwell C scale. I chambered a 1903 barrel in 30 M1 carbine cal and used an M16icon extractor, m1 carbine trigger housing parts and made the rest. Have some trouble with soft lead nose bullets feeding, ball works really well

    Very simple action, just a bolt and bolt carrier moving back and forth, barrel moves to the rear a short distance while the bolt is rotated out of the barrel collar. Ejection is not violent, empty cases are ejected almost two feet. Wish that I had not welded the muzzle brake to the BAR sight cover

    This was an interesting mechanism to build and shoot and have since made some improvements. Important to stamp information as to who made this, serial number and caliber. It is about the same size as the Frenchicon MAT 49

    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.
