The US Model 1917 rifle was an adaptation of the British Pattern 1914 Enfield. When US inventory and production of the 1903 Springfield could not supply our troops as we entered World War One, the British rifle, already in production by US firms for Britain, was re-chambered and adopted as our Model 1917. The bayonet followed the British pattern of 1913, even to the presence of two grooves on the grips to distinguish it from the P1907 and warn that it would not fit on the Short Magazine Lee Enfield rifle also in use by the British.

This has a Remington stamp and 1917 date on one side of the ricasso and an ordnance bomb over a “U.S.” on the other, nest to an eagle head inspector stamp and number “16.”

The blade still shows the original blue on the lower portion of the blade, correctly ending just before the fuller. The rest of the blade is a dull silver gray mixed with some caramel brown and a few darker gray spots, but with good edge and point. The guard and pommel are good, with lots of the original blue. The wood grips are good, with no deep dings or scratches and tight. The scabbard is the Type 1 Variation 2, in good condition with minor scuffing to the olive drab paint on the obverse and some slight rust coming up on the metal tab rolled over the belt hook on the reverse of the scabbard.  [sr]
