    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.

    Looks like a nice Swissicon K31 7.5 x 55 straight pull rifle

    1911....I think they are also referred to as G11's. I have one and that gun is super fun to shoot.

    They are truly beautiful pieces of work. I have been lucky to handle and work on many types of military surpluses rifles and those Swissicon guns are the most impressive from a mechanical and quality perspective. Even though they saw no action in actual conflicts, I am very happy to have them in my collection.

    G96/11. Two quick ways to tell is by looking at the pistol grip as you can see its grafted on and by the cupped buttplate instead of a flat buttplate. A purpose built G11 would have that pistol grip being a solid part of the stock not grafted on and the buttplate is flat (which I find better for reducing the felt recoil). Serial number is another way to tell, but your not able to quickly glance at that usually.

    Fine rifles, indeed. Glad I socked away some GP11 while the getting was good.
