M1917 Pictures

I’ve been enjoying the heck out of everyone’s M1903 pictures, but I gotta admit that I have an even bigger soft spot for the 1917. For me at least, it is my go to bolt gun because it is such a pleasant rifle to shoot.

Here’s mine, 1918 production Winchester. All the important bits have remained Winchester, but when it went through the refurb process, a few Remington and Eddystone parts found their way on. The condition is quite good and the bore is excellent.

Thanks from Tommo, stoky, jpowen and 12 others

Because it’s a half brother, I’ll include my Eddystone P14. This one has all Eddystone marked bits, but the volley sights and unit disc were removed, probably during arsenal refurb.

I used to own this Miltech Winchester with a Criterion barrel. The front sight was a bit too small and far away for my aging eyes.

I just traded for this sporterized 1918 Winchester - a stock is inbound and stock hardware and a repro sling are on order. Very nice metal, no rust or pitting. 1-18 barrel was very dusty but cleaned up nicely. The only flaw aside from the cut down stock is the ejector was missing, but a shooting buddy is squaring me away on that. Good quarantine project!

Remington M1917

Here's my one and only M1917, its a 1918 Remington with an unusual yellow birch replacement stock (also marked "R" for Remington). Somehow it escaped the application of BLO back in the 1920s-1940s, and thus the wood retains its original blond color. Based on lack of finish wear it was likely restored at some point, or perhaps it was some sort of presentation rifle of some sort in the 1920s, but probably a restored rifle (all parts are Remington). It has a few interesting arsenal repair patches on the left side. Sling is a original Kerr 'No-Buckl' item. I have a Remington bayonet for it as well.

Smleenfield, that’s a nice collection you have! Love that you have a P14 as well! I couldn’t believe my luck when I stumbled across mine.

Thanks from smleenfield

Thatís one nice quarantine project! Glad they resisted the temptation to touch anything other than the stock.

I too have both a Pattern 14 and 17. The 14 is a 1915, the 17 a 1918. Both are Winchesters and in great condition. Shoot them occasionally.

Pictures required or it never happened.

Just realizing that my photos are terrible for 1917. I'll have to rectify that in the future. For now, here is my Winchester 1917 that has a JA replacement barrel and a Winchester stock. The rest of the parts are a complete mix. Its a reasonably good shooter and I actually like the cock on close after I practice with it for a bit.
