    What would be the difference from just closing that eye?

    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.

    Hi Daan.
    It is a very nice system to get more focal depth.
    You don't have to squeeze the eye, just look through the small peephole very comfortably and have a much clearer sight picture.
    I'm sure that the real diopters could be even way better, but it is a cheap and efficient way to get back in the saddle without going broke.

    Thanks Ovidio I got the rifle ones for $40/Aud will have to dust of my 303's and get back into them.
    But these dash'ed motor cycles we have are always wanting to be ridden on weekends and as my wife works Mon-Fri she only gets the weekend to ride her motor cycles which we do together, but lucky me I can scamper off to ride any day of the week.

    You can't complain, Ron.
    You have a wife who rides bikes and shoots. Or, if she doesn't shoot, she still doesn't hinder you.
    Pretty much like me.
    Sometimes I'd like to complain a bit, but then I feel so ashamed...
    Damn... nothing to complain about!

    Your dead right Ovidio I have really naught to complain about.
    We have just got back from Walpole in the Southwest had a great blast on some very twisty roads with my V4S, the boy's complimented my wife on her good riding ability (With panniers on) of her Ducati Supersport S as her level of skill is such now I can flee the scene with the fast movers and not worry about her.
    TBH that V4 is a weapon it just wants to be ridden hard its not easy to get control of that Rt wrist.

    As for shooting we compare our scores and its not often I beat my wife as I shoot F open and she shoots F standard and full bore so when I beat her then I do stand on the top wire and crow a bit.

    Good to see you are still out shooting . You are still welcome to come to Texas to hunt wild pigs . Texas has a big pig contest going on for the month of Feb . 77k for the largest pig shot . It should take about 400 lb to win . I got a 250 a night ago with thermal on a 30 AR . Your 303 target shows why the Enfield was never competitive in our military rifle matches , you would have needed all 5 shots to at least touch the center red dot . The only .22 target match we did was a BR-50 match . But it was with scoped match rifles at 50 yards . To win it a guy would have to hit a pin head size dot about every shot . That does not really compare much to what you did except to show just how well a match .22 could shoot at 50 if needed . Sorry to hear about your covid ills , where I am at in TX we have not had lock downs , vac mandates , or masks and not much problem with covid . Go truckers .

    I’ll be in the good old US of A in September. Las Vegas, for our usual exhibition there. I’ll see to make a detour and come over, Bob. Thanks again!
