    Come to think of it, I don't think I've seen a BSA example younger than 1963, possibly 1964...


    BSA example younger than 1963?

    Are you referring to the more recent straight pull conversions John?

    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.

    Morning David, sorry I didn't explain it well, I meant to say I haven't seen a BSA example with a manufacturer date past 1963 (possibly 1964).

    BSA production 1958 - 63???
