Default Winchester M1917 I got at the south store yesterday.

Best I can find online is early 1918 build has a 1-18 WRA barrel. I have not looked real close but bolt and several other parts are Marked "E" stock is a Remington. I know very little about these rifles. Thoughts and comments welcomed

All I see is "Zoinks! You have taken a wrong turn." Some of my friends would agree, but I don't need to be reminded of it. :-)

As the metal appears to be parked (original finish was blue), as well as Remington and Eddystone parts, I suspect a rebuild. Any rebuild cartouches on left side of stock?

I like your rifle. I think I know the armorer at the CMP who inspected it.

John, one of the members recently mentioned this when you get zonks. It works for me also, right click on the pic and than go to incognito and the pic will come up.
Thanks for all your help here also.

Not 1918 but early 1919 Mfg with that number. Why it sports a 1-18 barrel is anyone's guess unless you meant to type 1-19

The barrel date is actually W/11-18.

Pics show fine on Chrome. South Store is always a great day. Lucky You - congrats!

This is one on my future list to learn about, acquire and shoot as well. What are the specs on the blue hang tag? Is the barrel marked dark and have you looked at it yet? Shooter or wall hanger?

Thanks for the info. Barrel looks good and measures 1 & 1. Found a site that shows 12/18 for date of manufacture. After a closer loo at the barrel John is right it is 11/18 but date is not written on the blue tag like the Garand's usually have. Nothing about the barrel being dark. Armorer's initials are J.B.
