    old Model 1918 BAR photos

    The first two photos were sent to me by the late Billy Pyle some years ago. Pyle had a registered Model 1918A2 from WW2 and enjoyed shooting it at his private range

    The first photo showing the unipod is quite a rare photo, also the heavy finned barrel from the 1920's is not common either.

    The wood stock is I believe from pre war days and made for the 1918A1 or A2, it was recovered at a military salvage many years ago

    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.
