Re: what is a eddiestone rifle
The U.S. Rifle Model 1917 was chambered for the US cartridge 1906 (30/06) It is a very strong action, and receivers have been used for everything from the .458 Winchester and .375 H&H to almost any cartridge. After WW1 Remington continued to produce the rifle as the Model 30 Remington. It has a very positive safety, and the bolt handle is already bent so it's easy to mount a rifle scope on the action after removing the rear sight guards. Standard issue was a 26 inch barrel in .30 caliber. The issue stock has a stong resemblance to the British Lee-Enfield. A rifle that will serve you well.
