Enfield pattern 1914

Postby private ryan » Fri May 23, 2014 8:31 am

I was browsing just now looking for something different to build for ww2 games and I found this.

this looks like a much easier build than the normal number 4 and I was wondering if anyone else had built one of these.

i guess you could start with a Garand for the basic stock design and just change the detail's but it seem's a waist of a Garand ,otherwise i can't see it being any easier ,different maybe .

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well

Or you could buy a P14/17 stock & fittings and if you use a gas M700 everything pretty much lines up straight away, well that's the theory, I have all the bits and the M700 I've just not quite got round to doing it yet :roll: (there's a surprise :whistle: )

It is easier from my point of view as I tend to make my own stocks.

if you'r making the stock then you'r right ,much easier as you don't have to make the joint for the butt .

If you're making your own stock then I can't see that there's any particular advantage as you could make a No.4 stock in one piece like Warren does for his new Shoot'N'Scoot No.4.

Keep in mind if you're going for authenticity then the P14 was only used briefly at the beginning of WW2 as a sniper rifle before being replaced by the No.4T and by the Home Guard, so if you want a front line rifle you've pretty much got to go for the No.4.
