Re: Help me identify this action?

The picture is really fuzzy and hard to see the needed details.

Before the U.S. entered WWI, Remington Arms-Union Metallic Cartridge Co. of Ilion, New York; Remington Arms at Eddystone, DE; and Winchester contracted to produce a large number of Mauser-style rifles designed by the Brits in the early 1900s. They were chambered in .303. When Uncle Sam entered the conflict, the supply of 1903 Springfields was low, so the government decided to produce .30-06 versions of these "P-14 Enfields," as they were called. The Yankee rifle was designated "Model of 1917." Actually, more doughboys carried 1917s than 1903s in the Great War. They were excellent arms and highly regarded by the troops. After the war, Remington marketed sporting versions of the 1917 as the Model 30. Calibers included .257 Roberts, 7x57 Mauser, .25 Remington, .30 Remington, .30-06, .32 Remington and .35 Remington. Alvin York used a Model 1917 (and a 1911 Government Model) in WWI to capture 132 German prisoners and win the Congressional Medal of Honor.
