They also cut a gas escape port in the receiver. Some of the M1916’s have cross bolts in the forend but not all do. A lot of them have repairs in the stock wrist where it was common for them to crack. I can’t say I’ve ever seen one with a cross bolt in the wrist before, but perhaps it was used to reinforce a repair. We’ll see what others have to offer, but that would be my guess.
    That was my first guess also based upon the shape of the stock. My guess is it would be a later M1916 since it has the flat adjustable rear sight instead if the roller-coaster rear sight.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    I have a bubba'd 1916 that has a cross bolt in the wrist. It has another one in the normal position also however. The front sight is not standard for a 1916 but that could have been changed.
