Yes, after WW1 rifles were sent back thru the supply system to armories for refurbishment, parts replaced if worn out or broken and replacement back into service or placed into 'war reserve' stocks. Some went overseas to other countries (Lend-Lease), issued to VFW posts for Ceremonial rifle duty & others sold off after being classified as obsolete (some of these were re-barreled / rechambered into custom hunting rifles).
