    Here you can see the shimming I've done. The Model 1917 is 2 thin shims directly under the centerline of the bore. The P14 required much more wood. You can see the shim here prior to trimming.

    The park finish could be original for a late war build Eddystone. In fact having a mixture of finishes would also be correct as long as they are all the parts are marked E. Only Eddystone adopted...

    There are plenty of US Model 1917 bayonets on Ebay. However a reasonable price is subjective. Most run in the $200 range with top specimens asking over $600! You might get lucky with an auction but...

    The rifle started life as a BSA No I Mk III in 1917. It's a shame it was butchered into whatever it is now from a WWI veteran. Numrich doesn't even have a listing for Golden State Arms. Finding that...
