Recently picked up a S P, bolt slide has the common number 7160091 but has also got a quite large H behind number, have not been able to find out what that is all about. HELP.

Type 5 slide only used by Inland and Winchester during production. Marked PI for Inland or W for Winchester. H may be a post war replacement.

That common number, may be the ordnance drawing part # for the slide.

V slide corresponded to changes in the bolt design adopted by Ordnance the same date. (refer to page on Bolts)

To facilitate identification of the modified type V slides the Ordnance
drawing/part number 7160091 was added to the bottom of the slide.

Not positive, but I think International Harvester made some post war parts. That could be the source.

Inland often marked their slides on the outside bottom with a large upper case letter and drawing number if a V or VI, while Winchester often had an upper case letter on top of the back wall. With saying that though, always allow for oddities. PI marked Inland slides sometimes had hard to read letters so they may be there, just faintly.
