Default Enfield 1917 Match Legality Question

Hello,

I am a gunsmith and have requests from a couple potential customers who want me to complete some stripped 1917 actions for them. I am having reproduction walnut stocks made. Would they be match legal as long as they conform to the standard GI dimensions and don't have any kind of bedding?

Also, are there any requirements regarding the bore ie. number and geometry of lands and grooves? I'm not finding blanks with 5 grooves that are not 5R, and I'm not seeing any that have just 2 grooves. I'd want to know if a 4 groove or 5R barrel would be legal.

Regarding the trigger, it needs to be 3.5 lbs or more right?

Thank you,

Steve

Default cannot answer your but

Was wondering if you would have any extra stocks to sell.
I would be looking for straight grained walnut but would take curly walnut if that is what you have. I do not need metal.

As long as the outside dimensions are the same as a GI barrel, you will be fine.

If you are making new stocks, I think you will get a good amount of interest for them (the stocks that is)

Would you guys be wanting stocks with metal or without? Also, I was planning to use curly walnut because of its high strength and beautiful figure. Would that be good for the match shooters too?

Thanks,

Steve

Awesome, we've got a military barrel scanned and coded for CNC milling. I think we'll be using 5R blanks for both the 30-06 and the 6.5 Swede builds.

Hi Steve;

Here are the rules, save these, read what they say and don't read what they don't say.
Note that there are 2 rulebooks, they have different details. A rifle legal for one match may not be legal for another.
