    EDDYSTONE 1917

    I recently picked up an Eddystone 1917 production date, 2/18.

    All numbers match. Wood is in very good condition and bluing is around 85%. The barrel is original.

    It was reconditioned at the Agusta Armory, and it's really 8n excellent shape.

    I paid $650.00 for it. Is this a good price?

    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.

    Without seeing pics, I'd say you paid about half of it's actual value. Now...let's have a look?

    Thanks Jim! I feel better now after paying as much as I did for my Eddystone.

    Evidently you got Hell of a deal. When I bought my Rifle, True Value showed under guns sold, with beaters in the $400 range with the high over $1000. Gun Broker showed a low of $800 and a high over $2000.

    The way I look at it, you opinion is like bellybutton, everyone has one.

    I've read this thread about five times and don't get your point. You unhappy or what?
