Since I had them out for cleaning I thought I would Post my two WWI babys. Top one is a Model of 1917 Eddystone. It had any ugly layer of Varnish on it. Removed the varnash with 3M easy Strip. Then after drying a day it had several coats of Boiiled Lindseed Oil handrubbed in. MUCH better. While it was stripped my friend who has a Gunsmithing shop(Everyone should have a friend like that) disassembled and cleaned it. The bolt was really dirty. Eddystone Ser# 72,XXX Barrel date of 7-18.
Bottom is my SA 1903. Ser #803XXX Barrel Date of 1-18. It goes in for cleaning next week. I haven't shot the 03 yet but will after its cleaned and checked out. Enjoy. Robert
