Default P14 stock needed...sources?

Hi all....been a few years since I posted.

I got a Remington P14 at an auction today. The price was more than right, but the stock is in need of replacement. I found an option at Apex Gun Parts, but wondering what other options might exist?

The rifle appears to be in pretty good condition otherwise.

Thank you!

Ebay might be a possibility. I have seen some non-DP marked Pattern 14 stocks for sale on there in the past.

Can you post or PM me a link? I've been on there but haven't seen an actual stock, just parts.

For all.... I picked up the rifle (it was at an auction house).

Definitely needs the stock replaced. Metal is in good/very good condition. Unfortunately, SARCO had their way with their stamps and the receiver, but it is what it is. I don't need a museum quality piece.

Some odd, almost Chinese, markings on the receiver that are hard to photograph. That'll be some quality google time to riddle out.

The bore appears to be either incredibly fouled or pitted, or possibly both.

The rifling appears strong and the bore doesn't look frosty/dark, but when I look in from the muzzle, it's either heavy fouling or corrosion on it. Copper solvent still is coming out new blue jeans blue, so I've got some more work to do yet till I know the fouling is out. The rifling does look strong, though, so I guess the real determination will come when I shoot it.

Either way, the bluing is still in pretty good shape with expected thinning at edges. No serious external corrosion. Cycling was a bit stuff...cleaning the bolt body so the extractor rotated more freely definitely helped.

Locks up like you'd expect a 1914/1917 bolt/receiver to feel/sound when it locks shut. Safety works. Trigger is a tad mushier than most 1917's I've shot, including my current 1917 I own, but that's nit-picking.

Crown looks to be un-boogered. Prior owner says it shoots well...but I guess that's all relative and the incentive to get it sold was in the mix.

Honestly if it doesn't shoot horribly, it'll keep it's spot in my collection as a neat addition. I don't have much Brit stuff (only other thing is a No4 Mk1).

Sorry I was mistaken it was APEX https://www.apexgunparts.com/enfield...-plate-gd.html

They have them with volley sight cuts and without.

Those look great… but are sold out.


I was aware of Apex. They may be my best option… not sure yet.

Anyone bought any of these stocks from Apex? Seems like the only game in town, but I don’t want to go from bad to “less bad”.

Thanks!
