    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.

    Would that mean that the sniper rifles were also used to launch rifle grenades and signals as well as the normal garands? I've actually never thought about it before. One would think the sniper rifles would only be used for sniping since they were the best fitted and most accurate. Thank you for the very interesting picture. It just seems to me that launching grenades and signals would put a lot of strain on a rifle and it's scope that is needed for its accuracy. Or would he just be carrying extras for the nearby grenadiers? I guess the reason I ask is I have only seen pictures of the sniper rifles with flash hiders attached, don't think I've ever seen one with an m7A3
    or similar variant attached

    I wouldn't think either case. I saw this pic and just took it to be what it appears to be...a posed pic by a photog on the spot making his picture as interesting as he could.

    I did but chose to ignore them...

    Also, he's shooting posed at the front edge of the window, snipers don't do that. Posed.
