Yes. Rimfires have the same hole spacing as CF 40X and 700 rifles, so the 2 pcs. fit them all. For 1 pc. base, you need the one for a 700 short action.

Not sure, never measured them for an exact fit. However I doubt it, since all screws, pins, small parts are metric. I think the whole trigger assembly would work, but not the internal pieces, much...

That screw is 1/4-40. I would guess the thin flat nut was lost at sometime and was replaced with a wood screw. Not too hard to make the nut if you have the proper tap.
