    I suppose I'll start a thread for each of these 3 shotguns so we don't get confused.
    the barrel I was talking about above with slightly overclocked extension I think is an easy fix. with it of, I can feel the ridge of pushed up metal on the shoulder with my thumb. I think if I just lightly peen it back down, it'll snug up perfect. I say this after feeling how "tight" the damaged extension was on the other 97 that came in when I took it off last night. No trouble at all.

    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.

    And just gentle. I'll bet you're right. It should never wear down because it's been 80 years in some cases that these guns have been in almost constant use.
