    Sorry, MJ, but two of anything is only a "brace". To flesh out the "flock" you'll have to get a rolling block Remington in .43 Spanish. Good luck.

    The "no buckle" sling, shown above, is appropriate to the P14, but the tan or green web slings are anachronistic on M1917s, having been introduced during WWII for use on the M1icon. They are, however, much more practical than the leather M1907 sling, and I use them on '03s, '17s and M1s whenever I shoot the High-Power course.

As for its English cousin the P-14 how rare are they, I have a line on one in full military but its a little rough do I or don't I?
    need more info, get Charles R. Stratton's book, 'The Pattern 194 and U.S. Model 1917 Rifles'.

    ISBN 1 882391 29 2

    So I can't spell, so what!!!

    Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
