Default New M1917 club member here with pictures!

I am now the SUPER proud adopter of a Minty M1917 Eddystone with original barrel dated October 1917. 1-10" LEFT hand twist with 5 grooves, original bayonet/scabbard, Soldiers Manual and a M1907 sling, it is stamped W.T.&B.CO. 1918 C.A.C.

I have some light cleaning to do, nothing to heavy. I attempted to chamber a 30.06 round and it sticks, the round drops freely into the chamber and easily falls free. The case head fits into the bolts face as it should but is sticky and appears slightly dirty.

Default Slædepatruljen Sirius

The weapons carried also reflect the harsh conditions. Among the equipment used by the Sirius Sledge Patrol is the M1917 Enfield bolt-action rifle chambered in .30-06 Springfield, known in Danish service as the Gevær M/53 (17), and Glock 20 pistols chambered in 10mm Auto.

Keep away from dirtiness - keep away from mess,

Mind you keep your rifle an' yourself jus' so !

WT&B was an authentic manufacturer of the M1907 sling. The additional letters are normally inspectors initials. I have heard a mixed bag of this sling, and the Kerr Nobuckle being used for the M1917.

Nice rifle, congrats!

Participating in a gun buyback program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids.

Afraid not, but the seller accepted my offer of forty of them for the complete package. Made me ecstatic.
