M1917

I inherited a US Model of 1917 Remington rifle, serial number 69,916. I have been trying to read up on this and all I know for sure is that it is the Enfield M1917 30.06. It has apparently been sporterized with the stock not reaching all the way to the end of the barrel. The top of the stock has bneen modified with a chin rest blade, and the front sight is painted white. It has what appears to be a stamp that reads "L2" or somesuch near the bolt. The pad on the butt is stamped "Sile, made in Italy". Sile is also stamped on the side of the barrel half obscured by the stock. It is in fine shape mechanically and cosmetically. There is no clip or magazine for it. Can anyone shed any light on this rifle for me or maybe have an idea on what it is worth?
