No M1917, but the older sister P14. Unfortunatly its a deactivated "DP" rifle, an early Eddystone with a nice finish.

Here's mine, an Eddystone with 26000 serial number. The bolt is Winchester & front sight is Remington. It's a WW2 refurb. Outstanding shooter, too.

You don't happen to have a Enfield Mk3 .303 Grenade Rifle to go with that do you? :D You can't get original then that. Very nice, when did you dig that out?

A "C" with an arrow inside indicates canadian ownership. Can we get a pic to confirm?

Excellent! Love the pup, too! Is it an Australian Shephard?

Since these posts were first put up, I picked up an Eddystone U.S. Model 1917. Here is the photo from the local auction. It came with a repro sling installed backwards.

All original, matching and unmessed with M1917 Rifle made by Remington and with a 9 - 18 dated barrel.

Note the rare, original Soldiers handbook for the rifle.

M1917 at training for Bay of Pigs. Talked to some vets but they were not sure if they were used in invasion or just training.

All,

Thank you for this fun thread!

Here is a picture of my Eddystone M1917 Rifles, along with my Model 1903 Colt New Army Revolver. Why the revolver? Some of you may know that I'm into Thompsons. What do Thompsons have to do with turn of the century revolvers and M1917 Rifles, you might ask? Well, they are all tied together through history by John T. Thompson, namesake of the Thompson Submachine Gun.

From 1901-1903, Captain John T. Thompson was the Inspector of Pistols for the United States Army. My Model 1903 Colt New Army Revolver bears his inspector initials of "JTT" at the top of the frame, just above and behind the cylinder on the left side.

In 1914, Colonel Thompson retired from the military to work for Remington Arms Co., and was given the responsibility to design and build the largest small arms production facility in the world at the time. This project became the Eddystone Plant in Pennsylvania, where P14's were made for the British, along with Mosin-Nagants for the Russians, and subsequently, U.S. M1917 Rifles were produced there. Thompson also previously supervised the development of the M1903 Rifle.

When the U.S. became involved in WWI, Thompson went back to the Army, and was promoted to Brigadier General. He became the Director of Arsenals, and was in charge of all small arms manufacturing, including U.S. M1917 Rifles.

The top M1917 in the picture is quite a nice example, and has the appropriate M1917 Kerr sling. In the lower left corner, you can see two original flyers (displayed front and back) that accompanied M1917 slings, showing how to install them on the M1917 Rifle. The Kerr Adjustable Sling is the appropriate sling for this rifle, although certainly M1907 slings were also used.

You may notice that the second rifle, also an Eddystone, is shorter than the one above it. This has been a subject of curiosity for me for more than 20 years. It appears to have been arsenal reworked into a shorter rifle. Nothing about this rifle says "sporter." There apparently were some M1917 Rifles that were shortened for use by Filipino troops. I have corresponded with Bruce Canfield about my rifle, and he does not believe it is one of the Filipino examples, and we could not come to a conclusion as to why it was shortened. The person it was purchased from in the 1980's indicated it had been shortened for Navy service, but I have never found documentation to support his claim. If anyone has further information about my short M1917 Rifle, please post here, or contact me at my e-mail address listed below.

The other paper items in the picture are a 1943 Base Shop Data manual for the M1917, a 1918 manual, and a 1918 Soldier's Handbook. I have also had many copies in the past of FM 23-6, which was published in two versions during WWII for the M1917 Rifle. I sold all my copies of these manuals, but I have included 2 pictures of different examples of them.

The M1917 is my favorite bolt action military rifle.

Very nice stuff, Dave. :thumbsup:

Maybe one of these days we can persuade you to post some of your USGI full auto guns here. That NFA stuff always draws a lot of interest.
