Serial No: 57669
Provenance Ex-RAF Museum with taggs
Very Good Condition.
The stock is in very good condition and the metalwork
still retains most of the original bluing.
The bore is very good & gauges well within service
A nice P14 with original Museum Tags, this has only recently
been released by a RAF Museum and proofed. It recently came in covered
in old preservative and loads of built
up dust. It is fitted witha Fatboy stock with no finger-grooves, which
is correct for an ERA manufactured P14. As this one is manufactured by
Remington, it is a replacement stock fitted many-many years ago, I would
say most definately in Military Service.
The fatboy stock does not have finger grooves becasue of the wider forend
just forward of the action, they have a diagonal relief on the left side
of the fore-end becuase the wider section obstructed the long range volley
The original P14s were Mk1 but were upgraded very early on to the Mk1*
in 1916 and new rifles were manufactured as Mk1*, the main diference are
the bolt locking
lugs & extractor etc. It is uncommon to encounter original Mk1 P14s.
The stock is in excellent condition with nice markings
& a nice patina, the butt has the Patt 14 Marking but is slightly
The action, & bolt have matching serial numbers as does the barrel
which is dated 1916.
The long range volley sights are missing, but the front dial plate has
not been ground flush so could be refitted at a later date, as there is
no Weedon Repair marks refitting of the
Volley Sights would be Historically Correct.
This rifle came in fitted with the Parker Hale 5B target
sight, again covered in layers of stotage grease & heavy dust so has
been on the rifle for many years
Could this be an ex RAF Shooting Team rifle
