For bidding in this lot is a finely sporterized version of the US made Eddystone Enfield P14, chambered in .303 British. The Pattern 14 or simply the P14, was a standard British service rifle through the First World War period. It is a bolt-action Mauser Style rifle, with some Lee-Enfield features to provide a more rapid fire. The need for additional small arms combined with a shortage of spare industrial capacity led the British government to contract with United States commercial arms manufacturers, Winchester, Remington and Eddystone (a subsidiary of Remington set up principally to manufacture the P14) to produce the P14 for the British before the US entered the war in 1917. This example features a fine adjustment rear peep sight, paired with a bead/blade front sight, 5-round stripper fed magazine, sporterized walnut stock with cheek piece, contrasted by an exceptional 24" blue'd barrel, and polished bolt. The rifle is marked in numerous places, reading; "RE - 210402" on the receiver in front of the bolt, and ".303 - 2.222" - 210402" on the rear of the barrel. Both the receiver and barrel stampings are accompanied by multiple proof marks. The P14 was produced between 1914 and 1917. This rifle shows very-good condition, with only light handling marks to the walnut fixtures, and a fantastic blue'd finish. The rifle also shows a tight action, and a good bore, showing strong rifling with some darkness. This rifle Qualifies as a Curio & Relic Long Gun, and requires FFL Transfer or NICS Background Check. Serial Number: 210402.
