    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 have an issue with Winchester Service rifles in general right now. It looks nice next to the 1917. I really want a Winchester M1icon Garand now to go with my 52 Springfield. But This is the first double in my collection... I`M new. It sets nice with my IBM.

    GIBob,
    At $1450 it's still cheaper than the recent Import stamped more expensive ones.
    Been seeing some commercials nearly fetching this much with some extras included.
    Funny they have no mention of there being a CC stamp and the sling well being marked OI.

    Pics 2 and 3: Look like a cut down Hi-Wood to you ?
    I think maybe so, by also taking in to account the notch line ups between the stock and hand guard.

    The Gunbroker rifle is a bargain at $1400 if you are on the Left coast.

    Been busy with other "stuff" lately, and also hoping a few more would "chime in" about that GB Winchester. I missed seeing that evidence of being 'cut-down" but believe you're right - it's noticeable in several pics.

    I know you and Dave both have a point about the price, but look at all those rebuild marks, and that horrible finish (stock & metal) - maybe that's why so many of the pictures are dark. Do you guys think that's black paint? Lots of stake marks on the adjustable sight install, too!

    Hi-jacking the OP's thread here for a minute to ask Dave about his stock. The acceptance stamps on mine are reversed from yours and understand they were done both ways - but thought our s/n's were fairly close to each other. Mine has the "wheel" to the RH side.

    M1icon C Fan: I own a '17 Winchester, too! - My Dad's deer rifle from the 50's (sporterized) - I don't remember it, but both of my older brothers say he had a Krag before getting the Model '17. - Bob

    20 years ago, every carbine that went on these forums was picked to pieces. The responses ranged from expert to don't know nuthin'. A lot of people assumed that since the Win cartouches were always so fresh looking that they had to be humped. It ultimately came down to the truth: their stamps were just deeper and sharper. Another anomaly was that markings in the slingwell on Win. were sometimes missing, incorrectly done or well hidden in the wood grain. I'd bet that since Win. made their own stocks that it wasn't an issue for the stampers (We know who made them, so does everybody else). If I was using somewhat sketchy quality stocks made by someone else I'd be very interested in telling the user who did screw up. I have an original 1944 Inland that has nice Hillerich & Bradsby matching wood. The handguard is so poorly done that it obscures at least half of the front sight. It works but just barely. It came with the gun and Inland used it because they were in a hurry. You wouldn't see that on a Win. As far as the parts of your Win. stamping being different, I think that their only concern was getting the two parts on the same line. You never see vertical screw ups but you do see spacing differences. I'm very thankful that the vetting by ignorance phase of these forums was ended years ago. Riverbank George used to actually participate arguing like crazy about how all his stuff was genuine.
