A Very Good - Excellent example of a WWI Era Model 1917

This is the US military version of the P14 chambered for the .30-06 cartridge & issued to American troops in WWI. These were manufactured in the US for the American Military, where as the P14 was manufactured in the US, but in .303 calibre for British military contracts. The difference between the P14 & M17 is that the .30-06 is a longer cartridge, so the rear sight, magazine well & extractor are different. The long range volley sights were also omitted.

This specimen is in excellent original order & and still retains its original 1918 dated barrel which is in good shooting condition.
The bore measures .301" and has light frosting in he bottom of the lands.

The Walnut Stock is in Excellent hard to beat condition and has clear US Ordnance inspectors marks.

Still has the US Military Oil Bottle & Pull Through in the Butt

This rifle is in very good original condition and is a great example of a 99 year old
World War I Era M1917 rifle
