Former Mystery Part:
IDENTIFIED: "The P.14 tool is probably for stripping the bolt. With bolt open the slot fits over the cocking piece and this can then be pulled to the rear. There is a “U” shaped washer that then goes between the cocking piece and the shroud. The firing pin assembly can then be unscrewed.
The same result can be achieved by:-
· Opening the bolt
· Applying the safety catch
· Closing the bolt gently, this opens the gap between the cocking piece and the shroud.
· Insert a small coin edgeways on in the gap and open the bolt gently, the coin keeps the cocking piece to the rear.
· Unscrew the firing pin assembly.
· Less easily the cocking piece can be withdrawn by using the loop of a pull through, this is easier if there are two of you!
I learnt this in the Home Guard in 1954."
