    Does it have the standard follower assembly, or something more "compact"?

    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.

    It seems to have the standard follower assembly. The rounds double stack and both rollers are present.

    All shortie Sterling magazines were converted from fuill-length magazines. It was a simple insert and a saw blade came down and chopped the unwanted part off. Then the usual tool used to spay the end turned them outwards - and that was about it! Springs were would in-house and poundage set to that of the standard magazine tension AT THE FEED LIPS.

    As a matter of interest, some buyers wanted internal lips but Sterling said NO. If they folded INWARDS, it meant that the magazine could be inserted ar5e-about-face as they say in polite circles. So outwards they faced
