    Not an M1 Garand, but a P14 or P17.

    Yes, in Denmark it is also called a 53/17, and I have one Remmington, it is a very good and precice rifle, mine has the cal. 30.06 but they may also be produced in .303

    Oh, when I look better at it, I think this is a P14, but they are very similar.

    It's an Enfield P14 .303 calibre-it has the remains of the long range dial sights on the left hand side of the forestock-these were never fitted to the US M1917 version.

    As mentioned above its a P14, but its a DP P14, if its being sold as live, do not shoot it, you will lose fingers or worse, your life! There is a hole drilled through the chamber.

    How could someone even advertise this as an M1 Garand is beyond me.
    The golden rule of retail 'know your stock' is blown out of the water with this one.
    Have a great xmas

    Hi, here is my P17, a very good and precice rifle, I`ve bought it on Greenland in 1991, even the oil bottle was still inside, the sling is not original, but I don`t want to change it, because it has a history to me from my time on Greenland, in Denmark the rifle is called 53/17, and I gave about 50 dollar for it.
    Regards Yab.
