We are proud to present our newest shipment of P17 Enfield rifles chambered in .30-06 Springfield. These rifles are in original condition. These rifles came directly from Ethiopia after being in storage for many decades. Condition varies from fair very good. The P17 Enfield rifles saw use in World War I, World War II, and many other subsequent conflicts. This is an incredibly rare chance to get ahold of a beautiful piece of history!
These P17 are surplus rifles so expect dents, dings, scratches, possible gouges, bluing wear, minor cracks etc… but again we consider them quite nice by P17 standards and certainly a solid NRA surplus fair to good on the grading scale.

A Brief History of the P17 Enfield:

Before World War I, the British had the Short Magazine Lee–Enfield (SMLE) as their main rifle. Compared to the German Mausers or U.S. 1903 Springfield, the SMLE’s .303 rimmed cartridge, originally a black powder cartridge, was ill-suited for feeding in magazine or belt-fed weapons and the SMLE was thought to be less accurate than its competition at longer ranges. The long-range accuracy of the German 7×57mm Mauser Model 1895 in the hands of Boer marksmen during the Boer War (1899 -1902) made a big impression on the British Army, and a more powerful, modern rifle was desired. Thus, even though improved Lee–Enfield variants (the SMLE) and .303 British Mark VII ammunition with pointed (spitzer) projectiles entered service after the Boer War in 1910, a committee was formed to develop an entirely new design of rifle and cartridge. The starting point was to copy many of the features of the Mauser system. The rifle was developed at the Royal Small Arms Factory at Enfield arsenal in the United Kingdom.

    Hi there,

    I received my P17, yesterday and have to say that I am impressed with the quality.
    Taking the age and different theatres where it has served into consideration I did not expect that it would in such a good, used condition. Honestly, no one can expect to find new ones anymore after 80 years anywhere in the world.
    I read several reviews about RTI and was at first a little sceptic but truth to be told my experience was much better than expected. They are very friendly and even connected me with the owner for specific questions I had.
    We have to give these guys credit for all they went thru to bring such a rare lot of goodies home.
    So, keep up the good work and carry on since I will order many more toys from you!

    Requested “Hand Select Bore & Overall Condition” and received a Remington.

    It was filthy as expected, but retains much finish and has a decent bore with strong rifling. The stock has a few small gouges but considering it’s 103 years old and was poorly stored, it’s in good shape.

    Unfortunately, headspace may be an issue. The bolt closes on a NO-GO gauge. I’d like to give the rifle 4 or 5 stars but with the headspace being questionable, I can only give it 2.

    I tried a FIELD gauge and it failed too. I did however notice the bolt was very worn in comparison to the rest of the rifle. The worn bolt is not original to the rifle. I tried a different bolt and it passed. Replacing the bolt body was a minor issue and I’m pleased with my rifle.
    It’s noteworthy to mention RTI contacted me in response to my original review and offered to replace the rifle. Though I did not accept their gracious offer, their desire to ‘make things right’ is refreshing. Kudos RTI.

    Just received mine, took it apart and was expectedly dirty. The bore looks amazing my example I paid a little extra for the hand select bore.

    I ordered an Endfield P17 Eddystone hand select. Received it on December 3rd. I was very pleased with it. Bore is shinny and most parts are marked with the “E”. I see 2 flaming bombs. I did notice an old repair on the extractor and contacted RTI and they forwarded me a replacement. Very easy to deal with. Rifle has a lot of character and of course it needs a good cleaning. This is the second rifle I have ordered from RTI and have been very pleased with both.
