    In the early days of L Detachment, they used what they could get their hands on, which was invariably an issue Enfield revolver more reliable as a "side arm". Sand was a baine in any semi automatic's life. In all my dealings with the "Originals" they never once mentioned other options or even smaller ones, they simply made do!!

    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 ...

    A few weeks back I was fortunate see part of a large consignment of arms from Malaysia, amongst this, were a hundred or so Enfield Revolvers with shortened Barrels, all of these Revolvers had Parker Hale Stamps on the frame, presumably converted by them.

    Simon,
    Quite probable, aircrew had a tendancy to opt for a short barrel in anything!!

    The two digit number would logically be an inventory number and Small Arms School makes sense in that respect also.
