    Flying10uk--

    The type of wood used on both the P14 and M1917 was American Black Walnut. In comparing the M1917 and P14 stocks the front ends on the P14 appears to be a bit thinner. I don't know if the thinness is from the constant handling of the rifles as drill rifles or made that way. The front and rear bands for the P14 and M1917 rifles are identical.

    I have a P14 stock in the 1917 pattern on one of my P14 Winchesters. No gap in front of the forward action screw, but you can tell from the shape (squared off) of the front 2 corners of the floorplate, that its for a 1917. Looks good. Looks old. Is it totally incorrect?

    Are you sure that it's not a WW2 manufactured replacement P14 stock made in the U.K.? Are the finger grooves exactly the same length each side or a different length? Is there an eagle marking anywhere on it?

    I know this thread started with a question about P14/P17 hand guards and i think the question was answered and has moved through stocks, floor plates, fit, interchangeably etc. I just bought a P17 Eddystone off of GB and plan to bring it back to an original Model 1917 as close as i can get with the parts i have on hand. Here is the auction and since the last subject was floor plates, do you think what i am getting is for a P14, i do. I will post better pictures and show the progress along the way. http://www.gunbroker.com/item/717750642

    uhjohnson-- Your rifle is a M1917 .30-06 Enfield. I can see the US Army Ordnance flaming bomb stamp on the left side of the receiver wall. Additionally the floorplate on the front has the more squared edges for the .30-06. Other than the stock being bubba, it looks like a nice project to restore to a shooter if the barrel is OK.
