I've been looking for one of these for a while for my new US WW1 addiction. I'm pretty happy with the one I got. Mostly Winchester parts including the wood, but a few Eddystone marked parts on the bolt and some small parts. Recently traded another member of the forum for it. He included a 1918 Remington bayonet with it. As I understand it is a mistamped bayo as they were supposed to be stamped 1917. Let me know what you guys think!

nice ex USMC rifle...looks like a shooter.
Is there something that indicates that this is a USMC rifle? I was under the impression that he marines were only issued springfields. And yeah, I can't wait to take it to the range. Soon hopefully.

With a barrel stamped 4-18 it might have been "Over There". Make sure that Remington bayonet fits, they had a lot of problems with non-interchangeability of M1917 parts and accoutrements.

My M1917 Winchester has an Eddystone bolt and barrel dated 11-18, built a little too late to have seen action in WW1 but the M1917s were used on a limited basis in WW2.
I like to think this one went overseas, but we'll never know...
