It is not a rebuild it is a 'peddled scheme rifle' assembled by BSA.

All components were made in dispersed 'cottage industry' (many be one or two man companies - metal working was big in the Birmingham area) the action and barrel were produced by BSA and as all the other necessary parts were delivered back into BSA a rifle could be assembled.

The B on the butt-socket is the give-away.
