    Thanks. I could never get into the Italian or French Rifles, I wouldn't mind a nice No 1 Mk III SMLE though.

    Here are my US WW1 battle rifles:

    Eddystone m1917, made around April 1918 based on the barrel date. Nice peep battle sight, relatively mild shooter due to the weight. Winchester and Remington also made these, but I wanted an Eddystone, cause there's plenty of other Winchester and Remington rifles but almost no other rifles made by Eddystone. We ended up fielding more m1917s than m1903s in WW1.

    Rock Island Arsenal m1903, made around August 1918. This sight is harder for me to use. It's also a fairly soft shooter since I have the rubber grenade launcher boot on the stock. Helps with the LOP with my long arms too.

    Springfield m1903 Mark 1, made around Dec 1918 based on the barrel date. The Mark 1 was made to accept a Pedersen device attachment, in place of the standard bolt, that would allow the rifle to shoot .30 cal pistol rounds in semi-auto. Note the oval hole in the side of the receiver to eject the casings in that function. Pedersen devices are crazy expensive since most of them were destroyed. Anyhow these weren't made in time for use in the war.

    My M1 that Scaramouch and the boys enjoyed shooting at Whittington last October. It rang the gong at 400 yds.
    Battle pistol with it.

    Frank, you can steam a few of those dings out with a wet cloth and a iron but someone went crazy with the sander at the rear of the reciever.

    Great looking M1.
