    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 ...

    wow, what a tragic waste of a 33/40...

    There is a whole lot of repro stocks "marked" as original. I see a lot of dura-coat "bluing"

    The L42 and No4T Long Branches are sad fake garbage.

    I'm probably not going to bid on anything, but those Colt Pythons are making me drool. Wouldn't mind another Makarov either. Dang, let me go look at my bank account again, why didn't I marry a rich girl?
    I have a lot more experience than expertise, still have both eyes and most of my fingers though.

    Haven't seen the L42A1....what lot# is that? A lot of these rifles appear to be refinished.

    There is one of the very rare Northwest Mounted Police MkI carbine's for sale, albeit with a mismatched bolt. Still highly desirable and collectible. If I was still living in Canadaicon that and the Ross trainer would be ending up in my collection.

    7/10. LEE ENFIELD . MODEL: MKI CARBINE ROYAL NORTH WEST MOUNTED POLICE. CALIBER: .303 BR

    That is in Switzers Auction.

    The "L42" is in Ward's Auction, Lot 73.
    Ever seen a L42 built up on a .22 Long Branch 1944 receiver?

    Well the bright side is that only the extremely foolish should be fooled.

    Sorry, I missed that it was in a different auction. There was some very suspect and a lot of Bubba'd rifles in the few pages I looked at but I'd love that carbine in my collection.
