This week I picked up a new toy from my son-in-law (https://mrsurplusllc.com/), a US Model 1917 rifle. It came with a sling and trigger lock. They live about 4 hours from me now and I was about an hour into the drive home when I started wondering if the free trigger lock came with a free key... Turned out that I had a travel mug he likes in my car so I'm holding it hostage in exchange for the key!

I'll get a pic of the M1917 tomorrow and share it.

Fingers crossed your travel mug trumps his key for the lock.

My 1917s. Eddystone M1917 Rifle (made in NOV 1918), Colt Model 1917 (made in 1919), G&K holster (made in 1917). The US Army jacket was my Grandfather's, who served in WW1. The ribbon is the Mexican Border Service award, from when he was helping chase Pancho Villa in 1917.

there is the odd eddystone that turns up over here for sale...both in .303 brit and rarely in 30/06
a great rifle to hold onto to pass on to next generation....it would be getting a bit of use if was in my cupboard.

Gelan, I'll be shooting it, at least enough to see what it can do.

Elvis, yep, I hope to pass all these on to a grandson (so far nonexistent).

I can loan you a grandson. And he's close. He lives in Virginia.
