The Enfield 1917 was a good weapon, and was the foundation, with the ears milled off, for Remingtons model 30 sporter. The model 30 was popular until 1948, when Remington introduced the revolutionary model 721 / 722, grandfather to the 700, to compete with Winchesters model 70. The 721 was stronger than the mauser action (Remington had 3 rings of steel), and was cheaper to produce with modern manufacturing procedures.
