I was in a gun shop today wasting time and saw a mint U.S. Model 1917 Winchester .30-06 bolt action from WWI. It was sitting in a sporter stock, but the metal was uncut. The barrel date is 1-18 and is like new. It had a hang tag price of $179, but there is a ten percent discount today on all firearms. I bought it and have an original stock and metal on hand to restore it to original condition. Right next to the sporterized 1917 was a good condition 1917 Eddystone marked at $999 and reduced to $799. My rifle, once restored, will be even nicer. Take care...

Good for you and congratulations on a great find. Keep us posted.

I'll always regret not being able to talk a local bank out of their two Eddystones that they had been issued by the Federal government back during the Depression years as deterrents to the roving bands of bank robbers (Bonnie and Clyde and such). They were just sitting in a bank vault. No idea where they are now.

Glad to hear someone is having a win lately.
