    Hi Mark, ping a few pictures, screws in the trigger mech cover, or friction fit?

    Dating one to within a few years is very fraught because some early features such as the cocking handle were upgraded - as were the screws v dimples, solid v fabricated sears etc

    Hi Peter,

    For some reason I can’t upload them from my iPad. It has a screw on MkI trigger mechanism cover, but also holes for a MK2 cover. It came with a Mk5 cocking handle.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    The later guns had the facility for the screw-on or dimpled triggermech cover which made the trigger mech covers interchangeable between Mk2 and 3 guns. If a Mk2 had screws and dimpled recesses then it is a gun made after the start of Mk3 production.
