is it all Remington parts, or like most, has it been through the arsenal and is a mix-master of parts? What date is on the barrel? Is it the original WWI barrel or a re-barrel from 42/43?
This is my rifle that Pete is selling for me. It's all Remington and as far as I can tell it's the original barrel. I can tell you the barrel is in immaculate shape and it shoots dead on at 200 yards with the iron sights.
The RIA is a rebuild mark from Rock Island Arsenal. Boxed RIA with FK below. FK was Frank Krack, inspection supervisor. This was done during war2 time period.
Thanks for your additional information.
Nice '17. I didn't know they were configured with a canvas sling.
Thanks. Yeah, I was searching for a leather sling until I did a little research and found that the original canvas was more accurate. The only thing I wish I had with it aside from a matching serial bayonet, is the original cleaning kit. But it really is a show piece for someone's collection.
Wil consider ALL reasonable offers.
The original sling for the M1917 was the Kerr Nobuckl. These were light tan, light green or light gray with marking on the brass ends. Three sizes were made, M1917, M1903 and Thompson SMG.
USGI bayonets are not serial numbered to the rifle, that's a Euro thing.
