    WW1 Rifles

    Rather than venturing out into the swamp (as it won't stop raining here) I decided to mess with these two today. M1917 in 30-06 and P14 .303 Brit.

    Many do not realize the 1917 was the main rifle issued to U.S. troops during WWI, many think it was the 1903 Springfield.

    Correct - I believe that is what SGT York was carrying when he won the M.O.

    Very nice.
    I've always wanted an Eddystone.
    The prices are getting up there.
