    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.

Several of our scopes are used in the CMP Vintage Sniper competition on top of 1903 rifles. Brian Dick ...

    Isn't that just an A2 type backup sight? Those are the ones Norinco sent on their AR15s, the carbines they imported. I used on for years on my build.

    Basically rear sight for flat-top optics ready upper receiver. When used with optics it could be easily installed as a backup depending on the scope you maybe able to co-witness through the battery dead optic to use. I have also seen the full detachable carrying handle with rear sight used as backup but of course the optics has to be removed. Also seen the rear sight removable carrying handle used as the permanent sighting system due to a lack of optics in the unit. The flip up sights have pretty much pushed these rear sights to the side as they can be fitted to the upper and co-witnessed through the optics when required without having to install them under fire.
