    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.

    Supposedly there were a small number of "short barreled" T-99 Carbines found at wars end at the Jinsen Arsenal in Korea. I've never personally held one, have seen a photo or two. I think "Military Rifles of Japanicon" by Fred Honeycutt has a photo of one.

    I have only seen drawings of the real Jinsen carbine . A real one would be illegal to own unless registered as a SBR . There are a few home made Type 99 carbines out there .

    The "T99 carbine" this guy has is has a barrel longer than 16". I suspect its privately modified.
