From the Publisher
Charles Stratton has done an admirable job in The Enfield Rifle, Vol. 1, The SMLE (No.1) Mk I and Mk III, of organizing information about a complicated subject. The very clear and understandable text plus concise line drawings and easy-to-understand charts make it possible for the collector and shooter to know the SMLE rifle thoroughly. Charles Stratton's also provides a thorough history of the development of the SMLE and decipher's the often mysterious inspection, store keeper's and unit identification markings found on complete rifles, but also on each individual part. Charts, text, line drawings and photos show the collector and arms historian how to determine the origin and age of each part as well as the overall rifle. He decodes all the markings and relates then to specific arsenals.
Collectors and shooters will find all the information needed to understand the origins of this fine military rifle, determine its duty stations in many instances and assemble, disassemble (no mean trick) and maintain it in this book.

This book represents the perfect complement to a Lee-Enfield rifle, especially for those looking for technical information without wading through hundreds of pages or skimming through anecdotes and stories. Those looking for history, stories, or insane levels of depth should look for other books, though.
Overall quite happy with the book--hits the mark as a basic primer; and shows an astounding variety of markings and other variations throughout the parts list for these neat weapons of history. Good value for the buck--buy it.
explains a lot about the markings/ stampings on the rifles indicating the routes of armories , rebuilds
and dates of manfacture. Although mostly complete there leaves some questions or flustrations about
research of particular markings or lack of such, making further research needed.
Very Well worth the price..
