This reminds me of an SMLE I had cleaned up for a friend.

It was a 1916 BSA No I Mk III*, but the star had been lined out! So it had began life with no cutout (even though the slot and screw lugs were present) and one was added later. Since it did not have FTR markings that were visible (it did have under-the-handguard markings indicating an Australian rebuild in 1926), I installed a cutout and contnued on my way.

BTW, the lady who received the rifle as a present was VERY happy about the cutoff, she shoots at a public range in Pennsylvania where only three rounds may be loaded at a time, so going single-shot is easier with that cutoff.

Next time I see her with the SMLE, I will take pictures
