    We have a few new SMLE cocking pieces. I suspect they were made the same time as the SA barrels and bolt heads. These later bolt heads will only take a No4 Extractor screw (5BA) and likewise the contemporary cocking pieces have a 4BA (like the No4) thread for the striker retaining screw.

    All the later editions of the SMLE component drawings have most of the threads changed to the BA system. So later produced components can be affected.

    To quote Michael Caine, "Not many people know that". Better to be aware than wreck something.

    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.
