Stoneleigh Militaria Show
This coming Sunday, the 28th of January, we will be stalling at Stoneleigh Militaria once again. If you have attended before you will know just how good this show is! If not then treat yourself to a day out that will not disappoint! The show is at Stoneleigh Park, Kenilworth, Coventry, CV8 2LZ.
You will find us at the bottom of the ramp between the 2 halls. All our usual stock, spares, accessories, our own selection of repro items, and the weird and wonderful, along with a good selection of new and second hand books, including Collector Grade, Ian Skennerton titles and Peter Laidlers No32 Telescope book, and many more!
We look forward to seeing you there!

New in Today!
Just recieved this morning - a packet of original 7.62mm Enfield made Extractors for L42A1 Lee Enfield Sniper Rifles! First time in ages that we have been able to find any sort of quantity of these in one hit. NOS condition, grab them while they are still available, they are 'live' on the website now!
Also arrived in the last few days, a small number of excellent condition, original and Broad Arrow marked .455" Webley Mk6 Revolver grips, a pair of Webley 'Birds Head' grips, Mauser 'Broomhandle' grips, Walther P38 grips, and assorted other grip sets including S&W commercial revolver grips. These are being sorted and listed at the moment but should start appearing on the website soon. We will be stalling at Malvern Militaria on Sunday the 22nd of October and we will have them with us, so come and check them out.

DS Solutions Militaria - Specialist Supplier of Small Arms Accessories, Parts & Products
Do you have something to sell?
We are looking for Lee-Enfield spares, accessories and tools. If you have any of these surplus to your needs sitting around gathering dust why not speak to us about converting them into cash. We are usually more interested in quantities than individual pieces, but anything will be considered.
Please Contact Us and let us know what you have. The more detail you can give us the better, if you have part numbers better still. Please include how much you would like for your treasure, but be aware that we are buying to sell on and we do need to eat sometimes!
If you have other British or American spares, accessories or tools we will of course give these consideration as well if the deal makes sense.
Hope to hear from you.
Re- PayPal Payments - Update
We now appear to have resolved our dispute with Pay-Pal and so business now resumes as normal (or near normal) for the foreseeable future.
You will note that our website now no longer contains any magazines or similar which will take more than 10 rounds. This restriction on our business has been imposed on us by PayPal. Whilst we are forced to comply with this we would like to point out that we greatly resent this interference with our legal business!
To clarify matters, we do still sell magazines such as genuine WW2 M1 Carbine 15 round magazines and the 30 round 5.56mm 'E-Mag' by Mag-Pul, however we can no longer advertise these on our website or accept payment for them through Pay-Pal. If you require any magazine which holds more than 10 rounds please contact us by e-mail and we will be happy to furnish details of our products in this line and how we can be paid for them without upsetting any 3rd party.
It is possible that further restrictions will be imposed on us in the future. Despite asking clear and pertinent questions of PayPal as to what they regard as acceptable, the best that they can give us is 'certain firearms parts'. If you can interpret that then you are clearly endowed with powers not granted to us mere mortals.
DS Military Books
The transfer of all our books and paperwork to the new DS Military Books website is now completed. The transfer enables us to control these items better and also allows you to purchase using Debit & Credit Cards directly through the website without the rigmarole of having to go through PayPal. Something that we cannot do on this website unfortunately due to the attitude of UK Banks to militaria!
Our stock of specialist books continues to grow, so please pop across and browse what we have to offer.
