    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.

    2 coats of Fiebings dark brown and the repairs are fading away.
    I used a different dye on the nose cap tip, will see how different it ends up.
    Let's hope it stays that way once i start oiling.

    This one too has 6 coats of Fiebings dark brown dye.
    The fore end tip also has 6 coats but from the other alcohol stain. Dark brown too.
    It's quite different looking so i'm very curious to see how it turns out.

    And while i wait for the dyes to dry i figured i would strip down the carbine and give it a deep clean.
    Some will advise againts this for most people, that you risk breaking something.
    While i generaly agree, this is not my first and i prefer doing it this way.
    And you often find an unpleasant surprise... better at this stage than on the range though.
    Of course this time was no exception...
    The stricker keeper screw almost fell out by itself.
    After a closer look it turns out the screw has been replaced by one with a bigger shaft, effectively cancelling any chances of installing an original one.
    I will either need to use another cocking piece or get a custom made made.

    5 coats of oil on so now its time to work the wood a bit to make it smoother and also lighten up that color a bit.
