This in-depth study of the unique New Zealand issue Lee Enfield
Carbine has been undertaken by two of our own NZAHAA

from around the world they have been able to put together a
comprehensive retrospective overview of the carbines that
made up this special New Zealand order.
In addition to a detailed analysis of the survey results the
book includes a section on shooting the carbine and also its
service history, answering the question was it used in the Anglo
Boer War.
This book is a must for all owners of the New Zealand issue
Lee Enfield Carbine and Lee Enfield enthusiasts.

SMLE (No.1) Rifles Mk I and Mk III,
3rd Edition Revised
by Charles R. Stratton
The British Enfield No.1 Rifle (Mk I through lshapore 2A/2A1) is not only one of the world's finest battle rifles, but also one of the longest serving from Africa's colonial wars through World Wars I and II and Korea to the conflicts of the Middle East. The British Tommy and the troops of the former British Commonwealth counted on their Short Magazine Lee-Enfields for nearly 90 years, and many are still in use today. Skip Stratton, who maintains the Enfield Rifle Research Internet web site and is a collector of long standing, has written a superb book that provides a well-organized, detailed look from the collector's perspective at this fine rifle series.
Dozens of charts and illustrations take you through seven manufacturers on three continents and seventy years of production to identify each variation of every single part of the rifle. Stratton shows you how to determine which parts are correct for each manufacturer and each period of manufacture. Is that Lee-Enfield pre-World War I, World War I, World War II, or post-World War II manufacture? British or Commonwealth? Original or arsenal reconditioned? It takes more than the date on the action body to determine that. And what do all of those codes and inspection marks and cyphers mean? Do they help detemine the age of the rifle and its parts? Yes, they do, and all are listed in the books' 158 pages and shown in more than 90 illustrations and photographs. Also included are descriptions of accoutrements, cleaning tools, and bayonets issued to the British and Commonwealth soldier with his Short Magazine Lee-Enfield. Serial numbers, codes, markings, cyphers - this book has it all in an easy-to-use layout.

British Enfield Rifles Volume 2, No. 4 and No. 5 Rifles, 3rd Edition Revised

by Charles R. Stratton

Charles (Skip) Stratton, has done an outstanding job- again. He presents the No. 4 and No. 5 rifle part-by-part. Every single model, including the sniper rifles, target and match rifles and training rifles, manufactured in the U.K., Canada, the U.S., Republic of South Africa and Pakistan, is thoroughly described.
He begins by presenting the historical background for the development of both rifles, the No. 4 in the dark, early
days of World War II and the No. 5 (better known as the Jungle Carbine) prompted by the ferocious fighting in Malaya and Burma. He describes each variation of both rifles and explains what all the "marks," "numbers," and codes found on most parts mean and shows how to relate them to the various manufacturing factories in England, Canada, the United States, South Africa and Pakistan. He also provides a breakdown of serial numbers by year, factory and country.
Stratton then literally dissects both rifles, describing every single part and explaining the reasons behind any changes and points out how to identify those changes.
For instance, there are eight different receivers - action bodies- used on the eleven variations of both rifles, five variations of breech bolts, nine variations of rear sights, thirteen variations of barrels and two variations of stocks. Stratton also discusses every single part of the rifle in the same detail so that the reader and collector knows that there are three variations of the humble stock bolt, seven variations of the forend, three variations of the buttplate, and so on, as well as how to identify each and relate it to a specific range of serial numbers produced by a specific factory.
The book also translates the codes and markings that often pinpoint its original and subsequent military units. Collectors are thrilled when the discover that their rifle served at El Alamein or during the Invasion of Sicily, at Monte Cassino, Normandy or in the Far East in Malaya, or in Korea or Aden or anywhere else British forces were to be found between 1941 and the mid-1950s.
As with his first volume covering the Mk I and Mk III (No. 1) Rifles, this is a thorough and well-organized book that will aid the collector in determining originality and restoring these historical battle rifles to authenticity.

NEW! British Enfield Rifles, Volume 4, The Pattern 1914 and U.S. Model of 1917 Rifles
by Charles R. Stratton
Charles R. Stratton continues his very successful series on collectible British military rifles with the little understood, but widely available Pattern 1914 and U.S. Model of 1917 Rifles.
Often called the "American Enfield," the Pattern 1914 in .303 caliber was the only British military rifle ever built wholly in the United States even though it was designed by the engineers at Enfield Arsenal. The U.S. Model 1917 was the same rifle, but rechambered for the American .30-06 cartridge. Over 1.2 million Pattern 1914 rifles and 2.5 million Model 1917 rifles were built during World War I by three American companies, Winchester, Remington and Eddystone. More American soldiers, including Sergeant Alvin York, were armed with the Model 1917 Enfield than with the Model 1903 Springfield.
The Model 1917 Enfield has long been a favorite American collectible. Over the years, it has been sporterized for hunting and restored for collecting by thousands of shooters. Parts are commonly available and many P-14 parts are interchangeable with M1917 parts, making it quite easy to return a given rifle to original condition.
As in the previous two volumes, Mr. Stratton has provided a detailed description of each rifle on a part by part basis and noted whether or not the particular part is interchangeable between the two models. He provides a series of charts and explanations for the markings, codes and inspection stamps that appear on each part and tells how to determine which were originally manufactured for the P-14 or the M1917. He also provides a complete history of the rifle's development and use in both World War I and World War II. Also a complete description of the two sniper rifle variations of the P-14 that were fielded in both wars, the Pedersen device developed for the M1917, and the accessories that were issued with the rifle to soldiers of both countries, including ammunition belts, bayonets, tools and cleaning equipment. Separate appendixes provide an exploded view and nomenclature, production statistics, ammunition descriptions and sporting rifle derivations.
The demand for this book has been so great that the author and publisher decided to skip over Volume 3 in the series which will deal with the original "Long Lee" rifle for the time being. Volume 4, The Pattern 1914 and U.S. Model of 1917 Rifles is being published out of sequenc to meet this demand. ISBN 1-882391-29-2, 5.5 x 8.5 inches, perfect bound.

The Last Enfield-SA80, the Reluctant Rifle
by Steve Raw
Deluxe First Edition, 2003
360 pages, 382 illustrations
In typical Collector Grade fashion, this book presents the entire, in-depth story of its subject firearm, in this case the controversial British SA80, right from the founding of what became the Royal Small Arms Factory (RSAF) Enfield in the early 1800s; briefly through two World Wars with Enfield at the forefront of small arms production for British forces; and covering the adoption of the 7.62mm NATO cartridge in 1954 and the L1A1 rifle in 1957. That's where this book begins to differ from the normal saga of a successful small arms development, for even though the SA80 has been the issue small arms system of the British Armed Forces for almost twenty years, the controversies surrounding it have never let up.

The 5.56mm SA80, consisting of the L85A1 IW (individual weapon) and L86A1 LSW (light support weapon), was the last weapon system to be developed and produced at RSAF Enfield, which was closed down in 1988 and later turned into a housing estate. Ironically, the brand-new Royal Ordnance facility in Nottingham, purpose-built to manufacture the remainder of the SA80 contract, suffered the same sad fate within a decade.

Meanwhile, Heckler & Koch GmbH, then a subsidiary of British Aerospace, were awarded a controversial £92M contract which saw the entire small arms arsenal of the British Armed Forces shipped to Germany for modification and retrofit into the L85 and L86 A2 versions.

While it appears that the unpopular LSW is being phased out in favour of the belt-fed FN Minimi, no plans have yet been announced to replace the L85A2 IW.
