    Finger grooves were still in sealed pattern for MLM MkI*and cut off was never deleted on MLM.

    Waco16: Check out this old thread:https://www.google.com/url?q=http://...xftq-FYb6w7kyV. Apparently old bodies were used to fill a contract with Australiaicon for MLM MK I*'s post 1900. Perhaps new forends without cleaning rod grooves had been finished for that contract?

    In Britishicon Army "Instructions for Armourers 1912" it states regarding the MLM MkI* "NB In fore ends of future manufacture the Clearing Rod Hole will be omitted".
    Knew I had saw that in an official publication.
