It is interesting to note that Remington actually used M1917 receivers and other parts to produce the Model 30, 30S, and 720. When the WWI contract was cancelled, Remington was left with around 2-3 weeks production of receivers, barrels and other parts. Such was the wartime production volume that those leftovers provided the basis for Remington sporting rifle production for the next 20 plus years, some 30,000 rifles. Remington never actually MADE any receivers or .30-'06 barrels in all that time; they just drew on the WWI stockpile.
