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.

    There is a misprint!

    It is obviously supposed to list the markings, going round clockwise, taking the manufacturing code as 0 degrees.
    So the sequence should be 0, 90, 180, 270 (not 240).
    Check: the numbers 1,19 etc are indeed at 180 degrees to the manuf. code.

    They are batch numbers. Go here for a detailed explanation:
