he!!o

A simple question, but I can't find the answer.
When did the british army changed the brass weight pull through for the one with the steel weight?

Which one fits my 1943 Maltby? it came with a mk4 brass oil bottle from W.H.B.

I am sure it's the same rope only now there is a steel weight crimped on the rope.

looks the same BUT , i fear that might be reproduction thing as i do not think the commonwealth ever issued a steel weight - i could be wrong , never say never or always with enfields - but im fairly confident in that statement , i think it a reproduction 

that said the oilers look good from what i see in the photos

It may also be some one off in the field thing. I've done the same got the rope then made a weight & fitted it, only I used a piece of copper pipe.

When a bore brush is past it's best I used to use the brass end to make a pull through. Now I don't bother as 'Bore snakes are so cheap on e-bay.

Maybe it is a reproduction or something made in the field I dont now. But I did a little search on google images and you can find some more steel ones.
