    US Model of 1917 Chinese marked




    Stock markings may be Chinese or Japaneseicon or from the Philippines??? Receiver ring has been scrubbed. My usual luck is that the markings will translate as "Made in USAicon."

    The rifle is probably an Eddystone as the serial numbers for the other two manufacturers did not go up that high. Very nice rifle.

    I don't know what you have, the SN is a bit hard to see but looks like 5 or 6 or 9 first number?

    Is it a 30-06 or is it 303?

    None have ever been reported reliably back from the Philippines. Most were burned when the US took the Philippines back (Japaneseicon had equipped themselves in part with those) - no idea why they were burned, maybe just declared a hazard after 4 years of high humidity and heat and poor care.

    Not a likely war bring back, not out of the question but a lot have looked and no one ever document a family member in the Philippines with a 1917 from the war.

    A few have been brought back from Vietnam that would be from China originally (they don't throw anything away) and a couple from Asia that wandered over that way.
