Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

The correct center sling swivel for a 1914 ShtLE with the cast sling swivel fittings.
I believe its also military, not P-H because the PH ones are "taller", have Parker-Hale" marked on them, & so rotate a full 360 degrees!

Never saw one before, very nice looking.. I bet in the day, that was a costly little do-dad to produce...

Enfield SHtLE sling swivels
Now I, have seen them all.
In my British/Enfield collection, I, have several SHtLE rifles. All with fixed forward swivels.
I, just never seen a swivel like you SHtLE. I, never heard that PH,made an extension
swivel,that would swivel 360 degrees. One has to assume,one reason for this extension
swivel. Was it was made , to assist wrapping of the rifle sling around, the arm, for a steady
rifle shot. To end I, am most sure, your SHtLE, has a genuine Military type swivel.

I'd never heard of them either for the No1, I knew of them for the No4 & have one fitted to mine, then I discovered several versions for the No1 & went looking for one!

Now looking at those swivels!!
I, was most sure, I, had some type # 4 MK ! swivels on my Enfield rifles, In checking, i, found eight with these type swivels.
I, picked three special rifles, with this swivel.
Photos from the top downs
Top rifle SHT LE with fixed front swivel.
Second rifle # 4 MK 1 (T), with center type swivel. Swivel is mounted,in place of the front trigger guard screw to receiver.
This swivel, will only move to right or left and not move 360 degrees.
Third rifle # 4 MK 2 (F) Has center swivel and turns right or left and not 360 degrees.
Fourth rifle N0. 5.MK.1 has center swivel and turns right or left and not 360 degrees.

Still looking at those swivels, I, found a special Enfield rifle, that I, was looking for. Photos will show
this rifle is weird and has two center swivel bands and a special nose cap. The nose cap does not have
a stud for a stacking swivel. The stacking stud is located on the front barrel band.
