Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

My favorite 30-06. The one rifle I would grab if I had to bug out!

Very nice looking 1917.

My sons and I shoot in a monthly vintage military rifle silhouette match. There used to be a guy that shot a 1917 in that match. He always did well with that rifle

I have a nice Eddystone that was a Canadian lend-lease. Red stripe around stock and Canadian markings. It is a shooter. I love it.

They are one of my favorites to shoot as well.
Regularly shoot my eddystone in service rifle events.

Very nice rifle. I go back and forth between which is my favorite a M1917 or an 1903.

Beautiful! Have to agree with Tidewater_Kid. It would be my bug-out rifle.

The bore is in great shape and it shoots like a dream. Very lucky on this one.
