Inspired by the British Enfield, the M1917 30-06 was produced by Remington, along side the Springfield to outfit the American Expeditionary Force in World War I and was the main rifle used by them in Europe during World War I. Call it romance, call it history, I find myself drawn to the military rifles of old. Over a half million of these fine rifles were produced and carried by American men in World War I as they fought bravely against German oppression and stood their ground in the trenches of Europe.
A bolt action, heavy barreled rifle with a box magazine that utilizes stripper clips, it was very accurate. Though it was a standard issue foot soldier's weapon, it saw action as a sniper rifle all the way into Korea and the early days of Vietnam. Old doesn't mean inefficient that is for sure!
I loved the firm press of the bolt and how tight it locked down. No lightweight, the Remington 1917 weighs in at over 9 pounds and kicks hard when you pull the trigger. Straight as an arrow its rounds impacting the target at 100 yards. The simplicity of iron sights and ease of getting and staying on target speak volumes to me about how over complicated optics have become these days. I can almost here the whispers of those who have shot this rifle before me saying ready, aim, fire. I can not tell you how exciting it's to shoot a rifle that is just as capable today as it was 100 years ago!
When it came to providing the tools for our men and women in uniform to answer the call to action and protect the world from aggression, companies like Remington were there with great designs like the 1917 to help get the job done! - Anna
