    Value Of P14 With Volley Sights?

    Hi,

    I have a P14 I have owned for close to 30 years. The rifle is as follows:

    ERA manufactured
    bolt and rear sight match receiver serial number
    blueing and wood at 90 percent
    Excellent bore
    Has rear and front volley sight

    What is something like this worth?

    Is the rear sight also matching numbers? And is the bolt factory matching or force matched? You didn't state if blueing was factory original or reblued, just that it was excellent. And is your stock sanded, or is the IE in a circle marking perfectly visible?

    Bolt and rear sight are matching. The cartouches are visable on the stock and the blueing is original at 90 percent.

    Quite a few early ERA rifles seem not to have been converted or used much. There have been reports that something like the first 60,000 were condemned for active service due to QC issues, reputedly do with the heat-treating of the actions IIRC.

    Can't put my hands on "The U.S. Enfield" at the moment or I'd check.

    Sold one of mine 6-7 years ago, also in very good condition, for around $450 IIRC, but did not have the volley sites. I also have one very similar to your description, wouldn't think of selling mine now for less than somewhere in the $750-$800 range (and I may be too low at that!) Pictures of yours would help, but based on your description, I would start high and see what offers you get. That is based on the market were I live, money could be higher or lower based on the actual condition. Have to remember; these rifles are getting harder & harder to find, especially with volley sights intact!
