Saw a 1917 Enfield ( Eddystone) at a gunshow today, the muzzle end of the barrel was threaded back to the front of the front sight. Not sure of the purpose, the rest of the rifle looked to be in original condition, any guesses?:?

In the 1960's Conetrol and Johnson Automatics made muzzle break devices that were alleged to reduce recoil. They required the barrel to be threaded. Johnson ads offered the threading as part of the purchase package.
