    P-14 or P-17 action ?

    Acquired this 270-4000 (30 Newton necked to .277).
    Only proof on Remington action is flaming bomb.
    30 Newton had rim diameter close to 303.
    Note safe removed.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    M1917 receiver very possibly with a P14 bolt magazine and follower?
    P14's didn't get the flaming bomb proof stamp so that was easy enough. Although it's possible to work with a rifle without a safety speaking for myself I would never want to field one.

    M1917 receiver from the looks of the markings peeking out from under the rear scope base.

    Thanks guys.
    Cannot believe I got this for <$200 TMD!
    If bore is fried, I'll part it out, Unertl bases are worth 1/2 the price.
    If I wanted a big bore I'd send it to JES and get a 35 or 400 Newton, add a Timney with a safe but I've given up on hard kickers.
    More to follow when it arrives.

    Nicely done that receiver. Far better than most, though the removal of the safety is a bit bizarre.
