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.

    I received it on another thread I tried replying to on another thread here on this site also...
    maybe my computer has a glitch. (Although this reply had no issue.)

    Ahh, OK, I thought that might have been the case. Hope he intends to continue production since I've paid for an adapter a month ago.

    His website is back up - I feel a bit of relief over that. Three months more to go for the adapter and shield...maybe less with some luck.

    Flat Heat Shield Prototype

    I finally decided to try bending one of the flats with just a hammer and a couple short lengths of steel pipe. It took some time and effort but it didn't turn out too bad.

    It needs some final adjustments including the obvious "bow". The left side holes got misaligned when I absentmindedly reversed my template but considering everything else it came out OK ...sort of.

    "Dimples" on both sides between holes #7-8 (counted from rear) need to be applied and a final version may be ceracoated or parkerized to match the adapter.

    My sincere gratitude to rccathy for his generosity in providing these to experiment with.

    That really doesn’t look terrible at all.
    I think you get there with a couple more practice attempts.

    This is a fun project, for sure. Laser cutting, 3D printing, and other modern manufacturing techniques have a lot of promise to help our hobby!
