    The phrase "illigitimus non carborundum" comes to mind! Actually, the Brits used hand powered grinders, at least in the field, to sharpen their edged weapons which probably never hit 1,800 rpm (1.500 rpm?) Did the Brits have 50 Hertz during the war? Anyway, the slow speed of the hand powered grinder probably made it easier to avoid over-grinding.

    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 ...

    Okay, I put the bayonet up for discussion on an military blades forum. I'm now informed that it's an Sg14 as the blade is 310 mm. I'm told that if it was the S84/98 it would have a 250 mm. blade. My question is would the Sg14 be more common or more scarce? What gives the increased likelihood of it being an Sg14 is that would fit with what remains of the makers stamp, "Samsonwerk".
