    two high number SA 1903 rifles both with SA 7-29 barrel dates

    While not rare but un-common to find are two SA 1903 rifles s/n 1321534 and 1373022 both with SA 7-29 dated barrels. Both have SA SPG stocks and NS marked bolts. Serial number 1373022 has a star gaged SA 7-29 barrel and a type C stock from a later NM rifle stock is numbered 1497163). Serial number 1321534 has just a issue barrel dated SA 7-29, and straight stock both rifles and barrels are in excellent condition.

    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.

    I have #1374814. 7-33 barrel date. The stock was bubba'd and I restored it to full military configuration, back in the '80's. What's on your rear sight?

    I believe that is a sight cover made by P.J. O'Hare.

    P. J. O'Hare NM items

    O'Hare and his son made accessories for National Match rifles which included their tool for the rear sight fine adjustments, sight covers and other items

    O'Hare rear sight adjustment tool was given to me by a pre war National Match shooter Vern Rose. He enlisted in the USMC when WW2 started and came back a 2nd LT
