A 1917 Enfield in a sporter stock. Possibly made by Winchester as they were one of the contractors.

:D It is indeed a Winchester manufactured (Aug. 1918) U.S. Rifle, caliber .30 M1917 and otherwise know as an Eddystone, 1917 Enfield, P17, American Enfield etc...
This piece has a Fajen sporter stock though the metal is all original.
Still shoots minute of white tail, mule deer, moose and elk :lol:
Certainly my favorite rifle.
Hoping to post more pictures today of the rest of my Winchester boys/family.

My subjective thinking. There are no bad Enfields or Mauser actions.

Will I use this photo editor cause photobucket has SO MANY ads and cookies that are downloaded to your computer it is unreal!

I always downsize my photos to 250 and they are always clear and concise and no issues downloading them.

Just a thought.

I'm thinking I like your thinking :lol:
And I do believe that the 1891 Mauser is very possibly the smoothest, slickest and sveltest of them all. Not to forget to mention that the 7.65x53 is a dandy cartridge too.

Thank you CWG. I cropped and still get the message;
Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached.
It is a little stumping when I uploaded one picture but am failing with the rest at the same size???

Another Photobucket problem. Photos disappear without rhyme or reason.

Photobucket is really bad anymore...

Try Imgur...

{ Photos here should be no larger than 600x600 pixels. }
