Just so I understand about the knurled end. What diameter is the knurled head? Also the flats you are talking about. Does the end result look like you have a flat tire on top and bottom? (Sorry for the weak description!)

Its going to depend on how your supplier makes them.
Mine (I don't remember from who)  was about 3/4" diameter & 1/4" thick. I made the flats at 3/8" from center so they were more like a bar with knurled ends.
like this from here. (pardon my rubbish Photoshop quick 'n dirty rendering)!

Shamu. Couldn't source anything in town with the knurled knobs! Went with the head studs (6mm x 1/2"). Tightened down with the metric Allen wrenches and Red locktite. Braved the cold (-30 with the wind) wrapped off a box of 174g FMJ. Not a wobble! Solid like a rock! (Not shooting at targets, steel plates @ 100yds, so group is unknown, only the ringing off the ice cold steel!)

Another way is to use a Dremel to cut a slot in the head of a hex bolt & weld/silver solder/braize a slim, flat rod to give the "wings" you use for torque.
Red LocTite works, but is kinda permanent. That removes a nice feature of the Cad Technic, the ability to whip the scope off it if becomes unusable. (fog, snow, mud, raindrops, condensation & so on)

That is sage advise. It will be my next project, come warmer weather. We have a old deisel injector mechanic in town that can silversolder anything to anything! Thanks! Never thought of that!

The bolts with the big, flat knurled heads probably won't be found in a local hardware store.
On the intwerweb however, just about everything is available.

I haven't completely stripped my No4 Mk2 down yet. The screw that I assume holds the trigger assembly in place (the one that is a noticeable addition to No4 Mk1's) how does this come out? I'm assuming it has to before removing the hardware from the furniture. On reassembly, is it hard to line up? Thanks!

Its a through bolt with a slotted nut on the other side. You need a slotted screwdriver to stop the nut turning then just unscrew normally.
The "hanger (bracket) for the trigger is cut in a large "U" shape so its not really tight fitting, more of a slight crush fit of the wood to the sides of the bracket. The screw doesn't hold the bracket, that's brazed to the frame (receiver)

In case anyone here needs that cross bolt/nut, Scott Stonehill manufactures them and does a very good job at it. I ordered a few last year from him.

The screw replaces the metal strap arrangement on the No4Mk1 rifles. Basically it just holds the two sides together to stop them spreading out under recoil conditions.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!
