New to RTI!
We are proud to present these British P14 Rifles, restored to very good to excellent condition by James River Armory.
The metal parts were carefully disassembled, inspected, and refinished. The original stocks were removed, thoroughly cleaned, and refinished. Stocks may have small dings, dents, small missing parts of wood or trench art but most are in good condition. There may be small cracks in the stock and or small chunks missing as these stocks are at least 100 years old and have seen a thorough service life. Please view the photos above. All hardware from the stock was refinished and properly installed. The guns were carefully checked for headspace.
The Pattern 14 Enfield rifles saw use in World War I and many other subsequent conflicts. This is an incredibly rare chance to get ahold of a beautiful piece of history!

A Brief History of the Enfield P14:
Before World War I, the British had the Short Magazine Lee–Enfield (SMLE) as their main rifle. Compared to the German Mausers or U.S. 1903 Springfield, the SMLE's .303 rimmed cartridge, originally a black powder cartridge, was ill-suited for feeding in magazine or belt-fed weapons and the SMLE was thought to be less accurate than its competition at longer ranges. The long-range accuracy of the German 7×57mm Mauser Model 1895 in the hands of Boer marksmen during the Boer War (1899-1902) made a big impression on the British Army, and a more powerful, modern rifle was desired. Thus, even though improved Lee–Enfield variants (the SMLE) and .303 British Mark VII ammunition with pointed (spitzer) projectiles entered service after the Boer War in 1910, a committee was formed to develop an entirely new design of rifle and cartridge. The starting point was to copy many of the features of the Mauser system. The rifle was developed at the Royal Small Arms Factory at Enfield (arsenal) in the United Kingdom.
