    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 ...

    Is that an M&P at left with cut down barrel? I had one of those years ago too...nice. The price depends on your location of course.

    I have an M&P from the early 50's - paid $375 for it about 10 years ago. It's the only S&W I've ever owned and don't really know much about them. I like to think it might be worth around $500 now, but did see a similar one at a local gun shop last week (looked worse than mine) for nearly $800. My model is often referred to as a Pre-Model 10. Yours has a pinned barrel like mine, but the hammer spur is different. I don't have the lanyard and mine has a 4" barrel with a different sight. My grips are from a newer model. - Bob

    thanks guys,
    to me the s&W is a victory model...has a V before the serial number 59xxxx, on the cylinder as well and US properity stamped on top frame.

    the short barrel is what caught my eye. to me 450-500 whould have been fair for it.

    on the enfield, 350-400 whould have been fair.

    but for the test...going shoot later on this week and see

    A V prefix would be a Victory…..but those grips would then be a replacement? I’d expect to see a plain grip if as-delivered to the US Government during the war (see sample photo). Just for grins check the inside of the grips for a stamped S/N in the wood and compare to the butt S/N.

    This revolver has a story to tell. A shore patrolman or an MP or a civilian guard at an armaments plant held onto this revolver after the war and customized it to be better suited for his personal defense needs? A shorter barrel and square grips would be handier.

    Would be interesting to get a letter from the SW historical foundation on this one to see how much may have changed.
