Our Assessment: This custom M1917 Enfield is a nice looking, hard hitting rifle. From Wikipedia: When the U.S. entered WWI, it had a need for rifles. The Springfield Armory had delivered approximately 843,000 1903 rifles, but due to the difficulties in production it was realized that it would be much quicker to adapt the British design for the U.S. .30-06 cartridge, for which it was well-suited. Accordingly, Remington Arms Co. altered the design for caliber .30-06, under the close supervision of the U.S. Army Ordnance Department, which was formally adopted as the U.S. Rifle, Caliber .30, Model of 1917. In addition to Remington's production at Ilion, New York and Eddystone, Pennsylvania, Winchester produced the rifle at their New Haven, Connecticut plant. The 1903 was the unofficial service rifle. Eddystone made 1,181,908 rifles - more than twice the production of Remington (545,541 rifles) and Winchester (465,980 rifles) combined.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This C&R eligible rifle can be transferred/sold in California.
