Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection
This U.S. Model 1917 Enfield rifle was manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company from 1917 to 1920; approximately 545,510 were produced. The type was made under U.S. government contract for service in World War I as a supplement to production of the U.S. Model 1903. It is a modified version of the British Pattern 14 Enfield, which Winchester produced for war service from 1914 to 1917. The basic modification was a change in the caliber from the .303 British cartridge to the .30 govt.'06 U.S. cartridge. Known as the G-17-R and the Winchester M/17, this arm was never commercially available.

The National Armories were unable to produce the numbers needed. Winchester as well as Remington Arms Co. were at that time, producing Enfield type rifles for the British war effort. The Ordnance Dept. adopted the Enfield into U.S. service, changing only the chambering from .303 to .30-06. almost 2.2 million U.S. M1917 were produced for the U.S. military. (Gluckman, US Muskets, Rifles and Carbines, Barnes). NOTE: Buttstock storage contains an oiler and pull through cleaning kit in a small metal cylinder.
