    With a serial number that early, I suspect the rifle will be a Mk1, so the wrong rifle to build a No3 Mk1* replica.
    As a Mk1, i'd leave it alone. They are less common than Mk1* rifles.

    Hi Roger. The last lot of Colron dye I looked at in Homebase was water based. It would appear that the old spirit based stuff is now classed as a naughty substance.
    I still have a can each of the...

    These rifles from Navy Arms seem to be in too good condition to have been handed in by resistance fighters.

    Bear in mind that, other than seeing some use for sniping, the P14 was never front line issue anyway. I'm fairly sure that by the time they got issued to the Home Guard, no one was too bothered...

    That looks just plain wrong.
    The German e-bay site can be a good source for correct looking vintage scopes. They're not as cheap as they used to be though, and you do need a windage adjustable rear...

    Has the one you're buying been rebuilt, or is it original?
    The one you have is a 're-build; so, with the greatest of respect is a well executed Bubba.

    Thanks to all for the kind comments and good wishes.

    A friend of mine who's a gunsmith recently took in a No4 and he's asked me to identify a couple of stamps on the receiver wall.
    The first is the letters FTRM, but the letters are arranged...

    I think Ross Rifle Restorations has/had new, Candian made stocks for the P14. Won't be cheap, but, if they still have them, one would look good on a $10 rifle.

    Here's a shot of the rifle and a scaled down "Cabin Fever Challenge" (Rifle Chair Chanel, You Tube) for use at 20m, which is the extent of my garden. If it's worked there's also a shot "down range".

    6.3x57 would be .257 Roberts. 6.3mm is the metric designation for .25". The Roberts utilises the 57mm Mauser case, so 6.3x57mm = .257 Roberts

    Excellent, Roger. It's a very accurate little rifle. The fore-sight is a friction fit and works a treat.
