    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 ...

    Can only guess, but the first two might be reamers for removing carbon, the hammer would have many uses, and the third looks to be a tool for ensuring the rounds were seated at the correct depth in the belts - the three "studs" presumably fitting into the holes provided in the belts - which presumably explains the presence of the said holes !?

    The wooden handled cranks are headless case extractors....
    They come in many types of handles and configurations but all do the same thing.
    I'll see if I still have one left.
    They fit on the sled mount in the middle of the plate under the T & E mechanism.

    The aluminum hand device is for setting the round depth in the belt..

    MG1918, does the "hammer" have recesses in it's hitting surfaces on it's head? I was wondering if it is a copper/hide mallet with it's copper and hide inserts missing? Obviously your photo only shows the side of the "hammer" which doesn't tell us if the head is recessed.
