these are the forgotten stepchildren of the P1907 and M1903 , they were far more prolific in that era and lived to serve both major wars as well as a number of services with "aid" attached to the consignments , 

i love these rifles and collected them extensively in the past , many passed through my hands over the years , i now own only one eddystone P1914 but it retains its original WWI configuration with volleys , and one winchester M1817 in its original WWI configuration , i might one day look for 'the right WWII' version of each , but i still think of these as WWI rifles , 

these were the first successful 'american contract rifles', they all but eliminated the US armory production arms , and eventually we did go to all contract arms , i think because of the success of these three production experiences , 

they were such successes that after the wars these were the chassis that  developed some of our most interesting wildcat rounds and were well regarded as a donor for conversion deer rifle sporting arm as well as some of the competition builds , 

i actually had a canadian marked remington M1917 that was slicked up for a military shooting competition rifle , i sold it to a military competition shooter , i was no longer able to shoot that well and got a real nice enfield in the deal ,
