    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.

    I now have this in my hands and the best description I can give us that it is similar to your typical Vietnam bring back rifle. It has that level of patina and putting on the some parts of the bolt and safety but the barrel seems spared.

    The bore is dirty but I can see grooves so it may clean up fairly well.

    Pics will come later...if anyone has knowledge of these please help a brother out.

    I don’t know this exact model directly, but maybe with some pictures we might find some info and give a hand.

    Better pic of the crest..and you can see a star on a section of the bolt as well.

    In front of the crest is a crack that runs to the edge of the rear sight. I will have to put a spot of glue on that just to protect it during any handling.

    It was purchased by Brazilicon between 1922-1924 from FN. Supposedly for artillery/calvary troops. Unknown the total number purchased. As with a lot of short rifles/carbines from Brazil many were used hard and are found in similar condition like yours. The straight grip stock on yours is correct. Nice rifle, I really like the Brazillian Mausers and the amount of different varieties they have. I'm sure it will clean up well.

    I will likely only be doing a light cleaning as there is a large crack in the handguard and likely some smaller ones as well.

    I will have to put a little glue on the crack to prevent a catastrophic break but I am very hesitant to take this apart to clean it.

    I will say the bolt is def in worse shape than the rest of the rifle which is matching with serial A 81 which should an early rifle.

    I would try to take it apart if you can to clean it. I have noticed some of these South American Mausers can have some decent rusting/pitting underneath the wood that needs to be addressed to stop further damage.
