Genuine P14 stock & all other parts homemade?

Very neatly done.
Both here and in the 'Naval Brigade' and other threads, these really look like realistic weaponry, not just the brass-candlestick-with-a-pistolgrip Larp props.


My problem now is I'm currently converting an old No1MkIII into a light stalking rifle, and after seeing this beauty I'm having to fight the urge to sleeve the barrel with brass tubing and bronze cerakote the action.

Don't think it's a P14 but it is of that family. Otherwise, yes exactly

There seems to be an empty space in your post where the images are supposed to be.
I would very much like to see what it looks like.

Perhaps a U. S. made M 1917 stock?

that's problem with facebook hosting:

you need a service like photobucket or flickr


Photobucket has taken a rabid dislike to one of my browsers (an older version of Opera) so, if asked, I would not include them in my recommendations.

I use Dropbox, which has proven extremely reliable and easy if you know the one slightly-obscure trick to make it work with BG.

The least amount of work for me is what wins, hence facebook, since they are going to be uploaded there anyway.

But why put effort into something that is going to go away?

So this facetube thing deletes your photos?
That's handy.

Only the ones you don't want deleted, apparently. The ones you would most dearly love to see incinerated tend to stick around forever.

Don't like that supply.

It isn't going away, the album is still there. They changed their servers so external links no longer work.

Wouldn't  sounding  battle  stations  to  get the  Maxims,  lightning carbines, and French  75s   blasting away at this  monster be  the  wiser choice here?  Great  carbine,  though.  A  7mm Mauser  on  Lee-Enfield  action,  ingenious~
