I just picked up this 1917 Eddystone.

It has a 11-18 dated barrel and a 1259xxx serial number which puts its manafacture date also at 11-18.

It still has the cartouches on the stock. Its bore is extremely good. It was apparently a parade or funeral rifle at some point in its life because it has been carefully chromed a long time ago. I wish it could talk. I bet it would have alot to tell us.

Price was too good to pass up.

They suggest the string method if the barrel has been replaced. If the barrel and receiver have never been separated, the string method may not be necessary.


I will probably fire it next time I get to the outdoor range. Unless of course someone tempts me with a fun trade before I get that far.
