    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.

    Thanks, Jim,

    Glad you are out there ! Could read the cartouche but doesn't really show - bubba had sanded. Shows 1901.

    Have you shot this one yet Kab? Just wondering about the modified front sight. Probably shoots fine, that's usually why they were done.

    Jim, not yet. Just finished the refinish. Looking forward to it as soon as health will allow. I don't reload and ammo as you know is like gold - if you can find it. My son likes this picture better - he did most of the work.

    That's too bad. I have a set of dies with a trim die I'd send you to get at it...only one round of brass in there though. Reloading components are hard to get here as well as some cartridges.

    I used my Kragicon rifle at The Western Games a few years back. Lots of odd stares and curious folks. The rifle ran just fine no hiccups at all. Rapid string was different with the rapid re-load. I load 45 grains of 4831 with and high-end 168gr bullet. Easy recoil and a fun day, even if it was hot at Phoenix. Just bring plenty of cold water and enjoy.
