0002S Springfield 1903 not P14 action.

Patent infringement. Don’t know the amount. Know it ended w/war.

Actually we were....


But the 1917 is a cock on close Enfield design.

When the USA entered the war they bought out Englands share of the P14 and re-designed it again for the 30-06 round, resulting in the US Model of 1917.

The Eddystone is milsurp that eludes me, need one !

daddyusmaximus I really miss my #4 Mk 1, but I have a Spanish Mauser I really love. I can't think of any old surplus weapons I want right now other than a 1911, unless I could get my Lee Enfield back. Never liked my Mosin except for the cheap ammo.

Maybe an FAL...

I want something with some interesting history, on the budget, and something that I can shoot with, accurately. I already have 2 Mosins, a No.4 Mk.1 Lee-Enfield (really interesting history; made in 1943, refurbed in 1976, sent to Afganistan maybe? Also, it has initials on the stock, with 9 slashes on it. Mother almost fainted when she saw the initials haha), a Spanish Mauser M1916, and a Yugoslavian M59/66 SKS. What should I save for?
add a 1903 A3.

biathlon A Finnish M-39 if you can find one.

mojopin I picked up a Russian Imperial mark, and Finish SA New England Westinghouse Made Mosin at a local auction house. Has all the Russian and Finish marks you could want.

Gotcha & makes sense, thanks!

Was considering a K31 locally recently, but someone else snapped it up. May consider one again, if local, and reasonable.
