I love those bullets!
I love those old rifles too! There is just something about them.
I have an Eddystone US Model of 1917 that came with a bayonet and scabbard, the blade on the bayonet is 17" long. Longest bayonet I have ever seen.
The barrel is stamped 9-18, (after they got the case hardening sorted out.)
The Springfield was made between 1941-1942 in New York. I am pretty sure it is the way it came from the factory. I had a book from the library that gave me all the facts and figures on it.
Beautiful rifle, thanks for sharing!
