I have an interesting parts kit from an early select-fire MK1  no * on the mag housing and a select-fire lever on the front of the trigger housing.

The select-fire feature was deemed unnecessary, eliminated and a * (star) added to the model designation.

Would it be possible to post an image showing the other side of the wood stock?
Am I correct that barrel is locked in with a machine screw thru the front?

The barrel on the early model as shown has a screw in the front which locks into a recess on the case. The later has a lock screw vertical through the brass mag housing which this one doesnt and has never been modified.
