    Remington P14 MKI

    I recently acquired my first P14. There are no WRS marks. It's in fine condition, all matching numbers and Remington marked parts. Barrel is shiny and bright. Believe the stock is a replacement due to no markings on the butt stock. The bolt may be as well. It's only marked Remington on the cocking piece. It was imported by Springfield Sporters of Pa and still had their hangtag. Their stamp is underneath the hand guard.

    I posted photos on the Enfield Rifleicon forum. They said they did not specialize in P14s and recommended I pick up Charles Stratton's book which I have done. He states Mk I "rifles in original configuration will fetch a several-fold premium". How close is this example?

    Unfortunately, since as you say it isn't the original stock then the Weedon repair stamp or lack thereof on the bottom of the pistol grip is meaningless. As for it being a MkI, not a MkI* if the * is lacking above the serial number then it could be a MkI.....if it isn't a scrubbed MkI* masquerading as a MkI. The only surefire way to tell in this case is to measure the the left locking lug recess of the barrel. If its .050", it's a MkI barrel, if it's .10" deep it's a MkI*. As to value, a mismatched stock and bolt greatly reduces its value. In this case, it appears to be an overstamped Winchester bolt. Winchester bolts have their serial number stamped on top of the bolt handle, Remington and Eddystone are stamped on the bottom of the bolt handle.

    My early Remington P14 bolt would disagree with you. It has its serial number on the top of the bolts vertical side flat, just like the one shown in the op's picture above, although his is over stamped.

    I'd be interested in seeing a picture of that.

    LH Locking Lug is .625. Definitely a MkI bolt and barrel. I have an 18 rifle milsurp collection. Mostly U.S. All shooters. The P14 was an unplanned Acquistion. Picked up two Remingtons at an auction at a ridiculously low price. The one on top is a WRS and has been sold. The lower one has been cleaned and oiled. I was really surprised by the condition of the barrel. I'll be taking it to the CMPicon Range in Talladega the end of February and hope to post some photos. Incidentally, if anyone is near enough to plan a trip, the store racks should see an increased flow of M1917s. CMP has started to accept mail orders. Downside is the price increase. I was able to visit the armory in October where three benches were busy with 1917 production.

    Very nice. Rack looks like one I had back in the '70s from castoff military. Almost the same rifles then too. Very nice...

    Just returned from CMPicon Talladega Marksmanship Park (TMP).. We concentrated on shooting our Garands. Was very pleased with first time shooting the P14 at 200. I did suck at greater distances with the ladder sight. Never good with the 03 either. Love the targeting system. The X ring is 3 inches. The 10 ring 7 inches. Weather left a lot to be desired. The South Store and TMP had close to 100 1917s.
