    Hi,

    I'm interested in buying one of these. Can you guys weigh in on the average price that they go for and which model is better tends to be on average better. What should one look for when buying?

    The P14 is almost non existant anymore. A great many were sporterized when they could be had for $19.95 from an ad in the back of Outdoor Life or The American Rifleman. Unaltered P14's are rare and very expensive as surplus military arms go, that said, I have one in fine condition and it shoots surplus 303 British ammo well.

    1917 is of course in a caliber for which it's easier to find ammunition.

    They tend to go for a minimum now of $450-$500 at gun shows for the 1917, and up to asking prices I've seen of around $750. The P14s are a little bit less.

    As already noted:

    US 1917 Enfield = 30-06.
    English P14 Enfield = .303 British.
