A Good 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 good original order & and still retains its original 1918 dated barrel
The bore is frosted, has some wear & gauges at .305"
This rifle is in good condition and for a 98
Just Come in so needs to be stripped & checked over
