    Here are some pics of my latest find. This is the rifle I was trying to get a value on and thanks to the folks here I made the purchase. Have some questions to the stock. Appears to be a Remington by the markings in front of the magazine cover but I have never seen a "S" on the end of the stock. It appears to have the flaming bomb stamp which is very light. Best I could do for the pics in that area. Please advise. Thanks!

    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.

    The stock is indeed a late Remington M1903 stock (not M'03-A3). The flaming bomb on the fore end tip appears on all Remington stocks from that period. I don't recall having seen the "S" marking before, so one can only speculate what it means. But it is not a standard Remington marking.

    Nice rifle! Thanks for sharing!

    p.s.,

    Your rifle also appears to be fitted with a Smith-Corona M'03-A3 bolt and an M'03-A3 trigger and stacking swivel.

    Thanks John! I knew the stacking swivel was for an A3. The bolt is marked H0 35 on top. No pic, spaced as you see. I thought the Smith Corona had a X on the top. ?????
