    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    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 ...

    The GCAicon Journal is preparing a great story after interviewing Dale Dye... he was the arms advisor for the series and actually played the part of Col. Sink. The draft is excellent!

    I'm convinced the country and the planet will never see men of such caliber again. They were forged, hardened, and toughened by the Great Depression. They could do great things with little but their courage and toughness. It is a huge loss for humanity.

    I do not believe I could have conveyed my thoughts better. Prefect analysis of the "Greatest Generation"

    Hard times produce hard people; hard people produced good times; good times produce soft people; soft people produce hard times. And so it goes.

    I highly recommend the book about Chapman, called "Alone at Dawn". It covers the circumstances of the operation in which he gave up his life and more -- all I'll say is there was some real shady business going on at the highest levels of our military and government to trample on his grave.

    Is that a quote or an original?

    Profound either way.
