    P14 303 need help

    A dealer who I have bought from in the past has a P14 English 303. The metal looks good, but the stock is a refinished 1917. He wants $650 for it as is. Seems too high. Two questions. Assuming the parts are correct under the stock, what is it worth as is? How difficult is it to find a true P14 stock and what do they sell for?

    The stock isn't a gigantic issue. I'd assume they're similar enough that it won't be too problematic until you want to shoot it. Pricewise if it was in the correct stock it's a fair price, since you want to get it in a P14 stock, you'll probably spend around 100 on that. My recommendation is offer 500, but I wouldn't be too firm on that.

    You did not identify the manufacturer of the P14. Early Eddystones are different than later Eddystones. I recently found an early Eddystone P14 stock at a local antique gun show for $100.00. I talked him down from $110.00. They are out there you have to just look for them. Good luck on your restoration. I would make sure the barrel is excellent shape for $650.00.

    What you're describing is a shooter grade rifle and there's no reason it couldn't be an excellent one. That price does sound high but I don't follow the US market on these. One consideration is that a P14 barreled action may not be a straight drop in in an M1917 stock. I have an Eddystone P14 in an M1917 stock that I bought at a show. It looked like they fit together but when I got it home I found that it was only very crudely bedded and it took many hours of work to make it right. It was worth it as that rifle is my most accurate .303. I would suggest having a real close look at it to see if the stock has been correctly fit.
