Not difficult to make them if someone can supply the recommended thickness.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

This is taken from page 87 of The 2012 Complete Book on Lee Enfield Accurizing B&W By Roger Wadham. I just purchased a copy but portions of it are available on google. It seems like a remarkable book with all sorts of information. 

"These plates were made of brass or copper, and were 17/32 inch by 7/16th inch in size, (.428 by .528 inch on calipers) and .125 inch thick. They are held in place with everyday 1/2 brass countersunk wood screws, and the holes are located dead center of the plate."

See link here.

I am surprised not a single soul had made up a batch of them.

If I ever start shooting my '44 I will keep an eye on the draws.




I the present I have a totally capable '43 BSA  to use.



I was just wondering what the OP's draws look like at this point ?
