M1917s in original shape are rare. Don't screw it up if it hasn't already been butchered.

I've never seen a removable mag for a 1903 or 1917. If it's all original please leave it alone.

I'm sorry to say the rifle is not in original condition, the rear sight is gone as is the protective ears to guard it and the upper and lower wood hand guards are also gone , and the barrel has been cut to 20" :confused:

BUT it shoots very well and it's hell for strong :)

BUT it shoots very well and it's hell for strongYou got that right, buckaroo!

You say the rear sight protective ears are ground off; is the charger clip guide still in place? If so, you can find stripper clips and reload that rifle very quickly using stripper clips.

Any magazine alteration would merely be something else sticking out to hang up on stuff.

Hey Archie: I'm Not sure what a charger clip guide is, But if you can tell me how to post a pic I'll snap a shot of the top of the receiver if that helps at all
