rifle identification

My friend has a bolt action rifle that was custom made. the receiver has "US, remington" on it. The action is a Mauser style. Would that be a WW1 action? ( maybe an enfield)? I had an '03-A3 and I don't remember it being Mauser style.

I gotta go agitate the techies!

Remington Model 30, I'm guessing.

Did the army (U.S.) use the model 30? It definitely has a military stamp. Will try to get photos tomorrow

1917 Enfield

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

The 1917 Enfield was a Brit design adopted by the US during WW I. In the US it was made by Remington and Winchester.

I have a Remington 1903 and they are stamped "U.S. Remington" on the receiver. You state it is Mauser style. The 03 is a LOT closer to a Mauser than the 1917 (which happens to be my favorite Military rifle). Easy way to tell even without pics...where is the safety? If it is a "rocker" on the right side of the receiver, it's a 1917. If it is mounted on the rear of the bolt cocking piece (mauser style), it's a 1903. The 03 is a copy of the Mauser, the P14/1917 has some features (stripper clip, extractor, ejector etc..), but definitely a different rifle


The 03 also has a magazine cut off on the left side marked "on/off"
kudu58 and bad primer like this.
