    He does not bother on small items like this at all. Too little profit for too much work.

    I might ask the person who bought the 20.000 Thompsons whether they also had spare grips. Maybe he still remembers.

    Pretty simple. Nearly all Thompsons on the market in Europe originate from the War Aid Thompsons delivered to Russia in WWII which were sold off until maybe 5 years ago via a large stock gun dealer.

    At the beginning I thought this would be a project over the winter. With your updates every day I wouldn't be surprised to see a fully restored rifle by Sunday. Wow!

    Looking at how professionally these "holes" are at the receiver I would question if I personally would want to remove those. It could very well also had been experimental. Prior to restoring the...

    That woodwork is awesome!

    From what I am able to understand your rifle currently has a barrel in .303 British in it. Therefore my understanding was that you would not need to replace the barrel,...

    I've just had a very good laugh when I scrolled down here and under the field where I enter my post the forum suggested a similar thread. The title reads " Restoring a sporterized P13...". I couldn't...

    Tgram, then I consider your rifle was in the possession of the USMC even much longer than the date of the SRS entry. Please do share a few more pictures of it, it would be great to look at it!

    The rear sight collar had been removed with this rifle and the longer 03A3 handguard has been fitted, but without the handguard retaining ring. The early single bolt stock dating to 1913 of course is...

    There was a post in here that somehow went missing - I didn't reply to myself. It was someone claiming again it is a 1892 Krag buttplate - why and by who was it deleted?

    Not knowing how a 1892 Krag buttplate looks like, so speaking generally, I would consider it somehow odd that on the inside of the buttplate would be two provisions for a trap door and the spring...

    The missing milled parts on the inside indeed would make one suggest it is an unfinished part. Probably a Bannerman-special?

    Jason, at that price you could buy a barreled action and from then on all parts on eBay or gunbroker. Don't waste your money on an item like this. If the starting price was $ 750 and you want that...

    You may not have asked for it, but did you notice:
    - the stock is not a SA made stock. It has the inletting for the 03A3 handguard retainer ring as well. So not period correct

    Gordon, you were the one who made it possible. Hence I am the one to thank you!

    Thanks! I am afraid however that you'll not get a range report since I do not plan to shoot with this rifle. While from a technical point of view I'd trust the repair (that in fact reinforced the...

    I cannot remember seeing a P.14 rifle equipped with a matching numbers (F) Sight. Even with otherwise all matching numbers sniper rifles always the (F) sights are mismatching. I'd therefore be highly...

    From what I can see your rifle carries British commercial proof marks, meaning it once was in the UK as well as in private hands.

    Your images are very limited, does the rifle still have its...

    Last three pics.

    Decided to restore it to resemble one of the snipers with the cutdown stock. Not only because they are different, but also because a sporter 1910 stock is easier to source....

    Restoration is complete. Too much hours went into it to be mentioned, but thanks to nowadays technologies such as laser welding you can even repair a bullet hit to a receiver.

    Therefore, just...

    The dimensions engraved on the barrel by Sako are the dimensions of .257 Roberts. They did NOT engrave 6.5x57. I don't think anyone at Sako has great fun in marking a barrel 6.3x57 of which the...

    I agree with vykkagur, Sako is not the company who would by mistake put a wrong caliber designation on a barrel. Plus the mystery on the caliber was solved, it is .257 Roberts. Why should we now...

    Not easy to make out the roundel, but you can see the rest of it in my pictures. I thought there were anyway only Enfield roundels - or are there differences?
