Add to the definitive form SMLE experts

The bolt-fitting caper was done by specialist workers at the factories. Trays of carefully-gauged components were selected for "best fit. "Best fit" was VERY tight, because after the complete bolt assembly was fitted to the barreled body, this assembly went to the proofing room where a "different" proof round was fired to "seat" the whole assembly of body, barrel and bolt.
