Yes the edge where its broke off is jagged and caught my cleaning rag, that`s how I noticed it!
I`ll take it to my gun smithy and see what he can do for it.

It is totally fixable. A competent smithy should be able to weld it up then shape it to original configuration.

I have a Z1 in my shed, but it needs renovating.

Good eye, are you by chance on any of the kawi triple sites?
That bike is actually a P4 class race bike I built a few yrs ago, street legal of course..., It is a 1974 H1 hopped up engine stuffed into a highly modified 1974 S3 frame, 1998 cbr600R front end, 1985 vfr400r rear end, custom built seat with oil tank in the tail, early Yamaha sculpted Seca tank (holds more fuel)
and Denco pro race tuned chambers.
Scary fast with plenty of get up and go straight through 10500rpm

Just got back from the smithy, he said it was totally safe to shoot as is.
He noted that this was the forward bolt head guide that keeps it from rotating up when feeding rounds.
Most often broken by single hand feeding rounds or by persons plying on the bolts head. He explained that by single feeding the bolt can some times rotate in the slot slightly and when jamming it forwards catches the leading edge of the guide damaging it.
I`ll take his word for soundness, he`s been fixing Enfields longer than I`ve been alive, it`ll be a sad day when he lives this world, not many like him around any more.

With the blessing of my go to smithy, I ventured out to the range in the rain to fire the Savage for the first time by me, .
Took 5 rnds of Win 180gr soft point and 5 rnds of my home rolled ppu brass imr3031 topped with 150grn Hornady sp interlock, both basic hunting rnds.

1st pic shows the 180 grn, using a spotter to zero in on the target, 1st, warming rnd,  2nd, 1st POA adjustment, 3rd, 2nd POA adjustment, 4th and 5th shots same POA as 3rd.
Last 3 shots shows a 2.5" spread at 109yrds

2nd pic, with the 150grn home rolled, same established POA as previous at 109yrds, 5 rnd in 1 minute just to see how it shoots.
2.5" out to 3.5" with the flyer.
I found it a little tough to focus with out the front sight protector on the rifle, its still in the mail.
All in all I think this rifle has some potential.

I really don`t like the 300/600 L`s

Shilo. 
This is on ePay right now.  A Savage issued Mk1 Singer Micrometer rear sight with the square S  stamped on it...


Got it for 56 pounds, decent ok price for a Savage made sight, compared to others out there.

Shiloh, I'm not on any of the Kawa forum's at the moment. I used to be on the Z1 forum for a while when I had my Moto Martin framed Z1. That was a nice bike. I ported the head and fitted Yoshimura cams and 29mm smoothbore carbs. The original Moto Martin 4:1 race pipe needed a chicane adding for road use; it wasvery short, the pipe ended level with the heel of my boot.
Never got into the 2 strokes; but they are certainly quick when properly sorted.

As for the Enfield; I'm sure you'll find it easier to aim with the sight protector fitted. It helps centre the whole front sight assembly to get an easily repeatable visuel.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!
