1917 Eddystone .30-06 Good Metal, Hillbilly Sporterized  Guns > Rifles > Military Misc. Rifles US > 1903 Springfield/Variants
Description: Lest we turn up our nose at the crudeness of the carving and modification to the stock of this good, solid old 1917 U.S. Rifle, manufactured by Remington at its Eddystone Arsenal during the Great War, Hillbillies like us, and specifically Tennessee Hillbillies are deservedly known for their patriotism and willingness to fight for their country. This solid old Eddystone .30-06 embodies that; the historicity of the carving is as important for cultural historians as the rifle would have been had it been preserved in its original condition. None of the metal, happily, has been altered. There is some red laquer on the front sight. The bore is good enough, with strong lands and grooves, and there is perhaps as much as 20 percent of the original blue remaining. We leave percentage grade to our shoppers’ expertise, but we have included sufficient photography for one to make an informed assessment. Serial number is 952xxx. All this rifle needs, to restore it to original specifications, is a stock. Ignoring the sporterization, the only serious detraction is a 4-5 inch hairline crack on the right front upper edge of the stock’s forend area. We’re offering this good old tribute to Hillbilly World War I Vets, both black and white, many of our relatives among them, for only $279.95
