I have a friend, collector, resource person and builder of period correct 03s that has 6 receivers that were made between the Crag and the spiked bayonet.

None of them are heat treated and one has the open rear like the Crag, I have a picture with all 6 side by side but I do not have permission to post the picture on the Internet. Most of them he found in Tulsa.

Bannerman purchased a quantity of unfinished M1901 receivers - some [.303] were made up from bits n 'pieces and given to Britain by him in WW1. Some were made up into sporting rifles.
These M1901 receivers can be distinguished by the lack of a 'hump' on the charger bridge for the safety lug to pass through; the cutoff housing is also somewhat different.
