    Default 1917 enfield?

    I have a 1917 enfield I am trying to identify. All that is left on the rifle is sn and an oval with the letters RE inside. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks for any help.

    U.S Model 1917 rifles were manufactured by Remington, Winchester and Eddystone Arsenal. Maybe RE stands for Remington.

    I have had 1 eddystone marked ERA. Right now my remington '17 action is marked "ington".

    Maybe the E is worn off. It should be marked on the front ring (usually).

    I have seen some P14 rifles with this style of marking. Those look the same but are 303 British caliber vice 30US
    The US M1917 ususally has a US marked barrel with a date and an ordnance stamp as well. Those receivers ofter seem to have an small eagle ordnance stamp on the left side as well.
