Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

In my collectiom, I,have three SHtLE 1 Rifles.Two have Breech bolt head clip charger bars and one the bar is missing.
I, have spent a lot of time on the web, looking for this part, with no luck. I, have checked, with Machine shops to make
a duplicate, again no luck.
This has been a long overdue project, I,m am going to make an other effort again at this time. I, need help and comments
at this time.
Advance thanks
Roy

Great looking rifles! Thanks for posting.

I purchased a 1907 BSA MK I*** about ten years ago. I was asking around on a forum about the sliding charger bridge and a fella offered to sell me one for $30. I purchased it. At the time I had no idea just how hard they are to find.

I wish you the best of luck in your search.

Roy,

There is one listed on eBay as of today. Not cheap, but available.

Beautiful rifles...

A question So how is it pushing a stripper clip though the sliding charger holder?? Is it much harder??

The charger head, lines up with no problem.Clip is pushed in , just the same as
ShtLE marK 111 or a # 4 mark 1. The mark 1 action is very smooth.
