Re: Whats your favourite shooting Enfield?

My first personally owned rifle was a Savage No 4 mk 1 but I've started to really like the P14 Enfield I just recently bought. Either way after all my rifles, I enjoy my 303 Brit rifles more than any other (although my Mausers are in a close 2nd.

Re: Receiver marking, Pattern 14 rifle

I'm feeling bad about not taking pictures yet. But I did get to shoot the rifle yesterday! Windage is just a touch to the left of where I'd like it to be but the rifle shoots nice small groups at 100 yards. I did discover that during the rebuild it got a Eddystone bolt but everything else still matc...

Re: Receiver marking, Pattern 14 rifle

The P14 arrived yesterday and the bore looks beautiful and the headspace is TIGHT! I have to detail disassemble it this weekend and really look it over but I got blessed with this one. I'm going to try to take it to the range this weekend and baptize it properly as well as take some better pictures....

Re: Receiver marking, Pattern 14 rifle

I should have it by the middle of next week. I got notification that they received my payment today and it's supposed to be shipped out on Friday to my dealer's shop. (My C&R FFL is waiting for BATFE to update the license address...I'm not going to go into that ordeal... :roll: :mad: )

Re: Receiver marking, Pattern 14 rifle

"This Winchester made pattern 14 rifle is chambered for .303 British (of course). It was used as a secondary rifle by the British in WWI. This example has a tiny import mark on the bottom of the barrel (which has a very good to excellent bore), a circled star on top of the receiver ring, a W precedi...

Re: Receiver marking, Pattern 14 rifle

If you had gone 25 dollars more it might have been yours. (I've done the same thing on an auction before where I stopped bidding when I reached my internal cut line) I got pulled away from the auction to handle a crying kid and figured it would go past my max bid and came back to find I had won. I'm...

Re: Receiver marking, Pattern 14 rifle

I won that auction for that rifle last night. I'm waiting for it to be shipped in now. When it comes in, I'll be sure to upload better pictures. The seller claims its a Winchester 1914 that has been through refurb to remove the volley sights and I believe that mark is the circle star to signify the ...
