    Indeed.
    The weapons bay on the new P-8 is laughably tiny in comparison.
    Just the thing for putting round holes in square heads.

    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.

    But does anyone know what the weapons payload is, in approximate terms, on the new P-8? It's clearly going to be less than the Nimrod.
