thought I post my new C&R addition for the few here who enjoy milsurp. a very nice condition M1917, or "american enfield". Just got it from an old gentleman who used to own a gun store in the 50s. He bought it in the late 1940s directly from the US Army Rock Island Arsenal. I like firearms, but the historical aspect of milsurps fascinate me. This gun was made in 1918, and is nearly 100 years old. It most likely saw action in WWI and perhaps even at the start of WW2 before being replaced with 1903a3s and of course garands. The overall blueing is in great shape. Gun was made in March, 1918! Has been around the block quite a few times. Each one of these stamps represents a visit to an arsenal for fix up. Hope you enjoyed the pics!
