    or at least I think this is what it is.
    Any of you guys know where is a good place to get small parts like that for the Lee-Enfield #4 MKI ?
    I am talking about the tiny screw that is going on the side of the rifle.
    Is it safe to shoot without if I can;t find one right away ?
    Is there any alternative ? like a small screw from other source ?
    Thanks for your help
     

  2. It is quite safe to use without the ejector screw.
    The ejector screw only comes into play if you are trying to eject an un-fired round. A fired round will be ejected by friction on the side wall long before it gets to the ejector screw - its a 'last ditch' failsafe method of ejection if nothing else works.
