I was trying to get advice on what this stock may be for? It is about 42 1/2 inches long. Has the letters AAM on the left side, has a P just below the trigger, and a symbol with number 339 just after the magazine space. Thanks

So now that i know what it is, would it be worth trying to build it?

Save it for when you find a lightly sporterized Enfield where someone cut the wood, but left the metal alone. I have a couple of Enfield stocks, and a Springfield stock, waiting for just such an eventuality.

Yeah I was going to say P-17 right off when I saw the small photos, but it may well be a P-14.

p14 would not have american cartouches... I agree, building a rifle from a stock would be very expensive but a lightly sporterized rifle would benefit from a replacement stock.

Originally created to augment a shortage of infantry rifles within the British Army during the Great War, the P14 Enfield was produced by three U.S. manufacturing firms, Remington, Winchester, and Eddystone. When the United States entered the war, they too experienced a shortage of infantry rifles, and quickly adopted the already in production P14 as the Model of 1917.

correct 3 civilian companies, which would not have US government inspectors marking up guns built for great Britain.
the 1917 was a completely different rifle, made in 30-06, not 303, no 1917 ever started out as a P14. I was pointing out that since this stock has american inspectors proofs it is from a 1917 not a P14....

It`s the same damn stock..................The difference between the Pattern 14 & the 1917 is, one is chambered in .303 & the other in .30-06......................

same damn stock.... but different rifles filled it.

no P14 ever entered a US arsenal so the mark "AAM" Augusta Arsenal IIRC, would mean it is the stock from a 1917, if I ever saw a P14 with that mark I would instantly know that it is a parts rifle and not original...

you are correct, you can slap a P14 in there but the marks would not be correct to that rifle model. you see what I'm saying?

Even in its roughed up shape someone might offer you a buck or two for that stock. Or you might find a P17 already sporterized and work backwards.
