    You may be absolutely right Bob, probably looks a lot clearer in hand as well but for what it's worth since I don't know how to take a picture and draw on it I tried my hand at drawing it freehand of what I'm seeing to see if anyone else can see the same thing.

    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. Manufacturer of various vintage rifle scopes for the 1903 such as our M73G4 (reproduction of the Weaver 330C) and Malcolm 8X Gen II (Unertl reproduction). Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ... BDL Ltd. - Specializing in British and Commonwealth weapons Chuck in Denver ...

    I also notice at the ends of some of these numbers is a thicker ball like end. In the auction picture, the number three is very clear with these thick ball like ends. Your number six seems to have a thick ball like end at the bottom which is why I thought it's the bottom end of the number five. You probably seen these style numbers on a million more stocks than I have so I'm sure you're probably correct about it being a number six but on my screen, it sure looks like a number five. The auction picture looks more like a six to me than the picture of your personal stock Bob, because the tops of the numbers are more cut off looking to me in the auction picture. On this picture, these are the two points that I thought matched on both yours and the auction picture

    Jon, your estimate is a little high! Don't know how many you've seen, but my total is probably a half dozen or less. Before I replied earlier today, I was able to visualize your pencil drawings in my mind as I studied your earlier posts. You've done a good job!

    I've got pictures from lots of old auctions and threads stored away, so hopefully can find more legible examples with that same style of numbers. It would probably help if I took time to search through some older threads here and on other forums, too.

    Thanks for spending extra time to help us all learn more about these old Carbines! - Bob

    Your right US BOB,
    I had Simpro Mfg Co. of Newark New Jersey: who made the fabricated SU B and SI U sights mixed up with Sedgley.

    You ever wonder who made the bayonet band for Inland Hand Stamped Sans Serif S and I and also S and Serif I ?
    Just Asking

    Charlie, I think I have an Inland with one of those bands and looked up the maker one time. Can't remember right now but will take some time this evening and see if I can find it. Just realized I showed the wrong Inland receiver pics to Dave HH in an earlier reply to this thread - so need to figure out if I can fix that, too! - Bob

    He probably had to look it up, too! While watching a movie with the wife last night, I did take a peek at WB for the answer. Came up with an abbreviated version of the same thing.

    I would add "&" between the words "Radiator Supply", though. I did have to dig through my safe - turns out I don't have an "SI" on any of my Carbines. Most of them are marked "AI."

    Here's one for you two: How many variations are there of the horizontal type Inland butt plates? Show us pictures if you want to - I don't mind if you Hi-Jack my thread!

    - Bob

    Mine is American Swissicon, most are so light that you only see the triangle.
