Thanks. It's an older photo, and since it was taken a few more Garands have been added (and some of those have furthermore moved on), as well as a few others have been added to the collection. I'll post those when I get time. What's in this photo, top to bottom:
1918 Rock Island M1903 with a Remington '42-dated barrel, "Hatcher hole", 1903A3 bolt with EP'd serial number (possible USMC rifle?)

1918 Eddystone Model 1917, all matching (s/n, and mfg) with the exception of a Remington rear sight ladder, and bolt lock. The original blue finsh is still present (but thin) and the WWI-era "eagle" cartouches are present and clear.

3.8 million Springfield M1 Garand with WRA bolt and post-war stock and rear sight (no lock bar rear sight.) This one is my sweet heart, rebarrelled to .308 NATO using a Douglas barrel.

Saginaw S'G' M1 carbine with 1943-dated Underwood barrel, and Inland lock/trigger group, with Koean War upgrades (Type II rear sight, pot-belly M2 stock, baoynet lug, etc...), but it still sports a flat bolt.

West Hurley M1 Thompson, registered full-auto submachine gun.

Remington-Rand 1911A1.

Blades present in photo:

Kabar, PAL 1942 M1905E1 (a cut-down M1905...I know, the "E1" designation isn't an official USGI designation), and a 1918 RIA M1905 (parkerized in a past service life...this one should be blued and have wooden scales if untouched.)

Very nice collection. Looks like you pretty well covered all the "major" US issued types from WWI - WWII. Ray

Is there any differance between the Edystone produced 17, and those by winchester/Remington ?
Just i know that the other two are supposedly more sought after.
Is this simply because they are more Famous names in American Gun Making History ?

Looks real nice to me, Personally id love to get 1 of each, even if the name is the only differance, they just look real nice :D

There were heat treating issues at Edystone (also at Springfield with the 1903). Some of the Edystone weapons are therefore not recommended for shooting. Incidentally, the US 1917 was much more likely to be seen in the hands of US servicemen in Europe than was the 1903 Springfield type. Some excellent Hollywood footage of WW I weapons in use is to be found in "The Lost Battalion."
