5/22/19 - This is a very nice example of an original Remington Model 1917 rifle, made in August of 1918. When the U.S. entered the Great War, it had a strong and urgent need to rifles to supply their military. The Springfield Armory had delivered approximately 843,000 M1903 Springfield rifles, but due to the difficulties in production, rather than re-tool the Pattern 14 factories to produce the standard U.S. rifle, the M1903 Springfield, it was realized that it would be much quicker to adapt the British design. The design was then modified to use the U.S. preferred .30-06 to simplify ammunition logistics. Remington would produced over 500,000 Model 1917 rifles over the course of the next few years. This particular rifle shows minimal finish loss to the metal parts, though it has a general dulling and some browning to the color. Sharp flaming bomb proof on receiver, bolt and barrel. Barrel also marked ‘R’ for Remington. Excellent stock with no major chips or cracks. Stock is unmarked. Excellent, shiny bore and smooth action.
