    My Only M1917

    Of all my USGI Military Rifles this is my heaviest, and is one of my most favored for its War Beast look :-) Its an all correct great shooter that kicks like a Mule and I can see why Sgt Alvin York made sure he Hit every time he pulled the Trigger!

    Nice looking rifle, wish I had one again. I had about three back in the '70s when we could get them in the grease new.

    Stock Cartouches?

    Can someone help explain what the different stock stamps reflect?

    S.A.A. (in a Box)
    E (in a Box)
    O.G.E.K. (in a box)
    OZ (behind trigger and above the P in a Box)

    Shouldn't have recoil like that. Are you holding it correctly?

    I found information in the search field for all of the stock cartouches except for the;

    E in square box which I assume would just mean Eddystone?

    OZ Thatís between the trigger and the square P.

    The boxed E is more likely a post war sub inspector. I've never seen it before

    Well thatís very interesting.



    Does anybody have an idea on what the O with the / thru it followed by the Z stamp is on the stock just behind the trigger guard?
