to all,

does anyone KNOW for sure if the same bayonet will fit the so-called P-17 "American Enfield" & the British issue P-14 Enfield?
(i'm looking for a suitable bayonet for my "new to me" 1917 Winchester, that i think MAY have been in British service during WWII.)

yours, stand watie

If the rifle has a red band painted on the handguard then it is a US M1917 rifle. The bayonet for that is the M1917 bayonet that could also be used on the M1897 Trench Gun. I think Numrich still has the bayonet available.

My memory is that the same bayonet will fit both rifles, but that both rifles were not issued with the exact same bayonet.

Steve,

WOO HOO! = i found a 1917 Remington bayonet w/sheath (dated 1918) for about 60.oo in GREAT shape for its 92YO age, so with the sling that my buddy (Ed) gave me, i have everything..

thanks for your comment/input.

There's what seems to be an excellent article on the P14 Enfields in the new issue of Shotgun News--Nov. 20 cover date (mail edition).

I've now read the piece. Dunno if there's any news there for you, but I learned a LOT about these rifles. Lots of great color photos, too.

I believe Walmarts now carry Shotgun News.
