Love those 1917 and 1914 "Enfields". Don't have any left myself, but very nice gents. Probably shoulda kept the USGI M1 Carbine; would have, had I had a wife or kids around.

Two M1 Garands; one 1944 Springfield, one 1955 Harrington & Richardson. Both from the CMP:



And one 1943 Smith-Corona 1903-A3, a very recent pickup from a surprise release from the CMP at the National Matches this year:

With the lone exception of the Springfield M1903 rifle, the M14 rifle
remains the longest serving rifle used by units of the U.S. Armed forces.

Attachment 96326Top to bottom: 1898 Springfield 30-40 Krag, An all Winchester M1917, Smith Corona 03A3, SA M1 Garand, and my favorite, a 100% correct type 2 Remington Rand.

I want to add a M1 Carbine and M1A to the collection some day

poor little krag... I have yet to ever see one in person that hasn't been sporterized... I'm starting to think they're all gone except for a couple pieces hoarded here and there.
