Default 1917 WRA Enfield

Usually when I think of sporterizing a military rifle I get this feeling in the pit of my stomach that reminds me of the last time I ate something that made me sick.

But when I saw this one not only was I absolutely entranced by her beauty but I knew she had to be mine.A week or so later I got my act together and secured her.

This is a early Winchester 1917 that has been professionially sporterized many years ago.Still has the original WRA barrel in .30-06.Yes that is an Weaver K4 made in El Paso,Tx in a Redfield mount and rings.The stock is bedded and is simply the most beautiful piece of wood I've seen in a long time.

The trigger pull is absoultely sweet.

Price was only $100.00 more than what CMP charged for their 1917's last year.

When the rifle range is no longer flooded mabye I can see what she's capable of. Here's the pics.

Outstanding early sporter! If it could only talk............
Should be an excellent shooter at the range. Plus it's a WRA.
Imagine what it would cost to do that conversion today.
