    As Issued Model of 1917

    Always nice to see what an M1917 looked like off the production line.

    This Eddystone has the late production dark matte parkerized finish, with a 10-18 barrel, and all correct E-marked parts. Cartouches are sharp. Internals still a bit greasy. A few freckles in the metal finish, and age darkening of the wood. But overall, just a nice U.S. rifle.

    A bonus came with the purchase: Remington 1917 bayonet and scabbard in very decent condition. I really should find a sling!

    Lots of pics. Enjoy, and thanks for looking.

    Yes, very nice. I remember when we could get those for about $45 CDN here...in the grease. You'd get tired of it and sell it and buy another later. Now they're all gone.

    Love those untouched, as came off the assembly line, rifles. And especially one that's only three years short of a hundred years, Ray

    Nice rifle martin08! Bayonet is equally in pristine condition. Did you find these at a gun show, your local gun shop or on the net?

    Thank you, folks.

    Yes, the bayo and scabbard are equally impressive as the rifle.

    I picked this up a little over a year ago, following a gun show. The show was fruitless, so I hit a small gun shop which I didn't see represented at the show. The package was a little more than $45, though. About 1,750% more... but I gladly paid it! These don't show up often anymore.

    Beautiful example of an all original rifle with a matching bayonet to boot!

    So many issued M1917 rifles went through arsenal refurbs prior to WWII.

    Seeing it's late production date is it possible this rifle was never issued and was part of the lot sold off by the NRA in the late 1920's?

    If so the fact it wasn't sporterized at some point in time is very rare indeed! - Bill
