    Western and Marbles

    I saw Micmacman's Western knife on a previous post and it reminded me that I had these in my collection of old stuff. The top one is a Western, middle is just marked made in USAicon. and the bottom is marked MSA Co. Gladstone Mich. USA (Marbles). Salt Flat

    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 ...

    the top one is a Western "black beauty" , they can go for $60 - $90 ,the thing with them is they are all metal and tend to separate at the seem ,yours looks to be in great condition , the bottom is a awsome knife , i would guess pretty old given the age cracks in the stag handle , i wouldnt be surprised if it was hand made or at least rehandled by someone a long time ago , the middle ive got nothing , the high mirror finish on the blade loses me , great knives though

    i almost grabbed a black beauty locally about a year ago , i was on the fence on condition and elected to wait for a better example , if it was like yours it would be in the safe
