What kind of groups are you getting with it now?

What do you expect?

The P-14 is an improved Mauser, and can match the M98's accuracy with no trouble - good enough for anything short of modern "benchrest" shooting... but those guys are a little nuts.

these were battle rifles - minute of man , the P14/M17 was an extremely accurate rifle for that heritage , it can be turned into a precision shooting rifle but it will no longer be what it is now ,

I wish it would shoot like my swede or 03a3 . I do shoot in military bolt and we are a little STRANGE when it comes to MOA  The p14 can hold 3 inch groups at 100 yards . I would like better but I thought I could remove wood in places like my other SMLE.
