    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.

    Enfield in Canadaicon, right?

    Or let me ask the question a different way: Where in Canada was the Inglis Hi-Power factory?

    Thanks.

    It could have been through a FTR when it was posted to CFE and went through a big workshop. These ended up everywhere as told in a story of repair and handling by Peter Laidlericon. They could be found in the hands of any of the commonwealth forces. Easy to see it going through an FTR in the UKicon at some point.

    The Brirish bought about 40K John Inglis High powers for the SAS and Airbourne in WW2 and used them and FTR them into the late 1960's. They were replaced by FN-made High Powers until the Glock G17 replaced them in service.
