British SMLE Mk I Butt Swivel Base, Broad Arrow Marked
Original Item: Another of those rare events in antique arms: we?ve found a small supply of the screw-in butt swivel bases that were unique to the very first Mark of the SMLE. The base has a large integral screw rather than separate base-and-screws like later marks. Before the SMLE, Metfords and Enfields used a similar butt swivel base, but it was machined with a narrow waist.
This group is a special prize in that most of the swivel bases are unissued, and they are all marked. We have the following marking groups: British Broad Arrow(7 only); RSAF Enfield manufacture; London Small Arms manufacture (two only); and the RAREST of all, RSAF Sparkbrook manufacture (only one of these). All are in excellent condition. Note: The same photographs are used for all variations.
