    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.

    Just a brief update on the heat shields once again - the opportunity to get back to the project has to wait on a couple other priorities but I'm looking forward to getting back to it soon as possible. I have a yard sale coming up next week and and some VA appointments to deal with but soon as that stuff is out of the way I''l get back on it.
    Stay tuned -

    Beware "Parts for Antique Guns Trench Guns" Adapters

    My initial order from Parts for Antique Guns or Ease Taylor arrived today after waiting the requested 16 weeks "IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN QUALITY." It's beyond my comprehension how anyone with any honest self respect or pride could betray customer trust like this. If this is an example of his work I'm extremely disappointed. It literally looks like it came for some back alley shop in Pakistan - not even China.

    The heat here and some medical considerations have left me stifled on further work on the flats. However I promise to get back to them soon as I possibly can. If "Parts for Antique Guns" won't offer a refund I'll remove his hand shield and attach it to my original adapter. His adapter is junk.

    Sad, I was one that recommended his parts before. I had a set here that looked good but wouldn't fit anything but the correct diameter barrel. Sad...disappointing.

    You don't suppose you ended up with a return from a user do you? Tried to fit but couldn't so returned it?

    The photos don't actually show how ugly the work really is. It's is so bad it's difficult to think he expects to be paid money for it. I don't like having to mention it but the only explanation I can think of is he must be an older man possibly suffering dementia and eye problems. In any case the disappointment is pretty overwhelming and I've decided to call tomorrow and return it for a refund. I also ordered one for a model '97 as well a few days following this order.

    Probably best then, hope the other one is better. This isn't what I expected.

    I emailed him yesterday cancelling the '97 order and he replied that is was cancelled and the amount refunded. After considering the painful reality of the M12 that was received I emailed him that it needs to be returned for refund also. This is such an unfortunate disappointment both sides but that's the way things are these days I guess. but can't quite understand what might have happened in his shop.

    Anyway I'll continue ahead with the last couple flats whenever I can and post the results.

    All be safe,

    Dick

    my 97 adapter and heat shield should come in next month. I'm surprised at your experience. Being the only person making these parts, I'd think there would be an attempt to keep the market cornered. I was also surprised that there were no Chinese knockoffs on the market yet.

    Maybe he was in a hurry to clear his backlog? Is it close enough that you could finish it with some handy file work? I've run in to this before, where repro parts are only 90% finished. threads need deburred, that kind of thing. Normally I'd complain, but if its the only available replacement, I suck it up, pay my fee, and pour in the sweat equity to finish it correctly.

    Sorry your mount was bad. My M12 was substandard also but East Taylor is the only guy building them. I was more concerned on the correct diameter for my barrel which was dead on. My unit had a run out so that the bayonet pointed to the side.
