Youíre gonna have to fix that! I prefer it to my 03A3. Not that thereís anything wrong with the 1903.

Nice to see it getting back to it's original glory.
One thing though, is that sling rigged right? Something looks squirrely.

Why does the rear sight lean forward in ladder mode or what ever it's called?

Here are a few shots of an old worn out Winchester I have. It's almost all Winchester with a W 6-17 barrel.

Excellent early Winchester example, rifles in this serial range were known to have been used in parts interchange tests and in troop trials and considered to be pre-production and/or test pieces, that’s one of the earliest ones I’ve seen; Winchester started their contact production of their M1917’s in August 1917.

Thanks for sharing!

Winchester did start a lot earlier than the other manufacturers. All of them were idled waiting for the final specifications to be provided.

The serial number on this one was applied on May 31, 1917 according to Winchester's polishing shop records that Nick Ferris reported in his book.

Neat early example. An advanced collector in my area found a 2 digit Winchester M1917 up in PA, but I can’t recall the serial number. I saw it once and couldn’t believe it, neither could my collector buddy who heard about and drove to PA to see it. It came home with him.

The 6-17 barrel is a real rarity. I have pictures of serial numbers 1 and 20, and both of them have 7-17 barrels.
