Default Win Model 1917? or 14?

I have a Win action serial W14388. Is this a pattern 14 or Model 1917?

Sounds like a P14 - does the receiver also have an "WRA" stamp? that would identify it for sure.

Pictures ! Must have pictures. Another clue would be possibly an import mark on the barrel telling the model,country imported from and caliber.

Any other markings on the rifle ?

If it basically only has the serial number Wxxxxxx on the receiver ring, it's a P-14. Look for British proofs, inspection stamps etc.: things with crowns, crossed pennants etc.

Thanks guys, unfortunately cannot provide pics as am in a rehap facility following knee replacement. Sounds like it is a P14. Trust me, I did not rebarrel it and purchased it with the new barrel.The thing has a Shilen 45-70 heavy barrel on it that shoots cloverleafs at 200 yds with 405 gr Rem ammo.
Will try to make some photos late next week and will post them .
Thanks for your responses, Parker

Well Parker, I'm no expert who can answer your question. I can say that is a beautiful rifle that looks to have a second life. Handsome stock!
