WWI US Mod. 1917, full, complete, ready for the range  Guns > Rifles > Military Misc. Rifles US > Model 1917 Variants
Description: The US Model of 1917 in 30-06 was the primary battle rifle used by US forces in WWI and was pulled out and used again for WWII. Originally an Enfield, British design for their Pattern 1914 rifle, contracted to be made by Winchester and Remington in Ilion, NY and Remington in Eddystone plant in Pa. Since the US was far short of battle rifles when they were ready to enter WWI, they took over the British contract and had the arms factories retool the receiver to fire the US 30-06 round, in place of the British 303 caliber round. This produced a great, strong battle rifle and many more were carried into WWI by American troops than was the US Model 1903 Rifle. The famous Medal of Honor recipient, Sgt. Alvin York was carrying his US Model of 1917 when he killed 25 Germans with his Model 1917 Rifle and captured 132 of the others in the trenches. contact sashe at cfl. rr. com for more photos and details.
