Default Fitting a p14 stock to a 1917 Enfield

Has anyone tried to do this and what is involved? I know the magazine wells are a bit different. The magazine wells on the .303 are shorter, I think. How about the bolt spacing? Any input would be appreciated.

It can be done. In addition to the magazine area, the 1917 barrel diameter is different. Some wood removal in the barrel channel will be required. It is helpful to have a 1917 stock for comparison. Take your time. Good Shooting. ...

With the scarcity of both types of stocks, you may want to see if someone is willing to do a trade. Once the stock is fitted, there is no turning back. I realize it's easier said than done.
Just a suggestion.

Thanks for your input. I'm actually finding p14 stocks on the web. No 1917's. A 1917 stock came up last night and I bought it. Hopefully its in good shape. The handguards are a bit questionable. What do you know about clips that are attached to the handguards? And sources for possible missing clips and liners if any?

For future reference, GPC/Numrich has walnut replacement M1917 stocks. They are supposed to be Italian made, so probably Minelli .

There are no clips as you would find on a 1903 or 03A3.

I thought there was some metal on the ends of each handguard.

Yes they are fastened with brass rivets. The upper and lower handguards are available from many sources. Generally not very expensive.

Decent P14 wood is worth real money. Hunt Ebay for a real M1917 stock, this is the way to go. Good luck.
