    Your gunna have to troll e-bay forever chances are it will take you a while and cost you plenty it may start at around $75/Au+ but that may be a very conservative price the screws are @$9/Au
    The cut off was discontinued I think by about the middle 1916 (My early 1916 Lithgowicon has the cut off mounted) they then reintroduced it for a short while in Aus early in WWII production then dropped permanently, so unless you want it for just single load whilst having a full mag its not part of that years makeup for a Lithgow MKIII others may correct me if I have erred, as I am here to learn also.

    My 1940 No1 Nk 3 Lithy has all the machining for the cutoff, I think 1940 was the last of the Mk3 no star. Nice to know my cutoff screw has increased in value form 15 cents to $9 I should have purchased a box instead of 1 at the time they were clearing out the Ordnance Stores.
