    with out pictures i can only guess its a bubba job.
    if its a 2 piece stock its a No1 MKIII.
    if its a 1 piece stock its a Pattern P14.

    give us some more info and some good pictures.

    It might be a Lee-Metford mark 1. They had eight round magazines and the barrel exposed. Here is a pic I found/stole from msn images.

    The Lee Metford was produced earlier then your date but it could have been reconditioned?
    I like this game.
