The rifle disk is considerably bigger than that meant for the revolver. Just out of curiosity...what's holding your grips on if that disk is missing?

Enfield No.2Mk1 Brass grip disk

So far I haven't found a piece of brass I can use. Haven't looked much with Christmas just past. The grips are held together with the bolt going in the right side grip and entering a threaded bushing in the left grip which seems odd. It looks like the threaded metal insert in the left grip belongs there but that would mean that when I get a disk for the right grip there will be threads to go through on both sides(?) Guess I'll just make something myself. Doesn't seem like a big job but you never know. Thanks

The screw should go left to right, with the threaded hole of the disk acting as the nut holding it all together. There should be a bushing in the left grip, but it shouldn't be threaded. Sounds almost as if someone got an oversized bolt/screw and cut some threads into the bushing on the left grip. If that's the case, you'll need a new screw too.

Enfield Grip Mystery

They may have threaded the left side bushing and used a slightly oversized screw. Hard to tell. Guess I'll hit the gun shows and see what they are supposed to look like. It's amazing that a small problem like this can evolve into a big one. Too cold to spend much time at the range so this and reloading will keep me busy til spring. Thanks for your help.

Here are a few quick shots of my '43. The disk is steel, but it should all be the same...
