The U.S. Model 1917 Rifle by Canfield



The U.S. Model 1917 Rifle “America’s Enfield” by Bruce N. Canfield

Finally, a comprehensive guide to the U.S. Model 1917 “Enfield” battle rifle that will be sure to thrill collectors and historians alike! This often-overlooked bolt-action was actually the primary American infantry weapon of World War I (far outnumbering the more famous ’03 Springfield), and now it has gotten the “Bruce Canfield treatment.” More than two million M1917 rifles were produced in less than 19 months, and they were still being stored in large enough numbers to be a significant factor in World War II.

Canfield tells the whole story from the rifle’s development through to its production by contracted manufacturers. Full coverage of component markings and inspection stamps is included, along with important new details about rebuild programs that will prove invaluable to collectors trying to choose an example for purchase. An extremely useful serial number database rounds out the package and makes this a “must buy for all  U.S. martial arms collectors.”
