    Good job! Looks pretty good! Good luck on making ammo! I’m in the process of moving . Won’t have any stuff for reloading available for a couple months. I look forward to your shooting progress!

    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 ...

    Looks awesome! I just received a Vetterli from RTI as well but one of the 6.5 conversions. I am having a hard time finding ammo and have not learned how to reload my own yet but that time may be upon me to learn lol.

    If you can see your way to build your own ammo, the 10.4x47r is the better if the two. The 6.5 conversions are considered marginal for shooting with factory ie military ammo.

    The 6.5's tend to go boom and not in a good way. C&R Arsenal blew two of them up. Lots of excuses why but I'm not firing mine. They were considered emergency use when made and pawned off on colonial troops after WWI was over.

    Can I get your permission to use a photo of your TS carbine in an article I'm preparing? It will be credited in any manner you desire.

    C&R broke two by using the wrong bullets and loads in their handloads . They broke them by not knowing what they were doing , not the rifles fault .
