    Finished project: Replaced the factory fixed M4 stock with a Colt N1 Fiberite CAR-15 stock and 4 position tube, and replaced the heavy factory epoxied, dual heat shield M4 handguards with CAR-15 7-hole slim handguards, both from a Colt 6420 lightweight carbine. Magazine is a Colt 30 marked "62667" that dates back to my USAF reserve days.

    Knocks it down under 7 pounds, and feels better in the hand. I also replaced the horseshoe BCG with a newer Colt M16icon BCG for more reliable feeding. The safety lever is a Colt reversible one from a late 6920.

    After the range results, the 6400C, loaded up with 77 grain MK262 MOD1s, has become my go-to rifle, pushing ahead of the AK and Mini-30. It is just stupid reliabl;e and more accurate with irons than any other rifle I own!

    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 ...

    I do prefer the slim handguards...and the side sling swivel. Nice.
