    2 More SRS Checks Please...

    Jim I have 2 more trapdoors I would like you to check please. These are my daughters boyfriend Paul and his fathers. They were a huge help to me during this endeavor so I said I would ask about theirs. I'm not forgetting help from you and butlersrangers, thank you both.

    1st is a carbine S/N 379753 I don't know the model.

    2nd is a rifle S/N 55140 with an 1873 block. This rifle is a bit of an oddball. 73 block, a ramrod setup, completely unmarked lock plate. My guess is it was either a very late complete rebuild or it could be a Bannerman special. Paul has a wishful thought of it being some kind of one off experimental or trials rifle but I have my doubts. Thank you, Bill

    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.

    So...379753, closest is 379751. It was issued to troop "C" 10th Cav. Thing is that doesn't apply like a blanket to this one. It too is a carbine.

    55140 has nothing even close. Except for one carbine before it there are just rifles. Most appear to be '73 rifles.

    This from SRS #1.
    Regards, Jim
