You need to buy a book or two; start with the new Lee Enfield book by Skennerton.

"The Lee Enfield" by Ian Skennerton is the "Bible"...just about everything you ever wanted to know and then some.

Skennerton also has the excellent Small Arms Identification Series out on pretty much every type of British or commonwealth arm. Excellent basic material on markings, correct parts, etc. Great for those looking for the basics on a budget.

Charles "Skip" Stratton's works from North Cape Publications are also a good basic tool for a reasonable price. Part by part breakdown, serial numbers, production dates, etc.

A couple of good websites...

And of course, with a digital camera and these boards, you can get about any question you have answered. :D

Also if you’re into the facts, figures and manufacturers I would advise "BRITISH SMALL ARMS OF WORLD WAR 2", also by Skennerton.

Has anyone got a copy of "THE BROAD ARROW", saw it and thought it might by up my alley but would like to get someone’s opinion before I buy it.

Cheers,
Lachy.

My copy of "The Broad Arrow" gets lots of use. Well worth the money in my opinion.

Thanks

Thank you all for all the selections. With winter coming on here in Maine, these books will help with the cold long nights:)

Thanks again
Rick
