With the exception of the price being way too high, the "high polish blue" makes me nervous. Originals should be parkerized or have a blue finish that looks very much like a parkerized finish. The mix of parts is just consistent with the condition you would expect of a rebuilt rifle. A reblued sporter will always look like one even if it's been put back into military condition. Reblued sporters often will have been heavily polished by the gunsmith who did the work. This leaves the metal looking a bit like a scrubbed down bar of soap as all the edges will have been somewhat rounded off.

In the words of an acquaintance of mine, he must really like the rifle because he's going to have it for a long time!!

For 1450, you can buy two M1917s and a couple of rounds for them... I don't think that guy is a real friend!

Thanks to all for your feedback. I finally managed to take a few photos and will appreciate any comments to narrow real value based on the photos. I will probably try to visit the Lakeland show as Ive been told that it has better supply of this type of rifles. My local shows are overpriced and must stuff is junk.

go here: http://yankeeartifacts.com/Rifles.htm

Scroll down to the Winchester 1917 STOCK # D32809 and see what $850 gets you.

BTW, that's formerly a Canadian Air Force rifle so probably worth more than they're asking.

To my eye, it's a good looking rifle. I don't see obvious refinishing. It's just over priced. I'd say $750 would be about right.

I would like to see some pictures of the receiver and the bottom of the rifle, ala the Eagle Mark, nose of stock.

At this time and not past prices, I would say $750 is good.

ps: nice shot of someone's legs!

On another note: You asked about why parts would be changed.

This is my take, they would strip them down, replace any bad parts. Other than the ejector I don't see a lot others getting broken.

Done in groups, all the parts get thrown in a box and then they go back on rifles randomly. As long as they can be interchanged (I have yet to find one that can't) , that's how I would do it.

Rearseneal would be where most of that would take place I think.

Personally I think a gun that has seen service and is typical has more real feel to it than one taken out of the stream and preserved with no field use.

I think the pristine ones have a place in that they show what was, the filed ones show what they were in the real world.

The pristine ones of course get more money!
