    ERA P14 Markings and other Info

    Just recently picked up a nice P14. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on some of the markings that the rifle has. I know basic history of the Pattern Enfields however i would love to learn more. The rifle appears to be matching as far as i can tell which is really cool.

    Any help would be appreciated! Check out the pics below!

    Here's some threads about these markings... Most of this has been discussed at some point here, easy to find.

    The royal cypher (GR = George Rex = George V) over the two crossed flags, over the P is the Britishicon Proof Mark.

    The Broad Arrow (/!\) is the Acceptance Mark (Ownership).

    The star or asterisk (*) = Mark I* rifle.

    ERA = The manufacturer: Remington Arms Co. of Delaware, Eddystone.

    2 = modification in cartridge feed ramp.

    Nice rundown.

    The Europeans do cooler proof marks than we do that is for sure.
