    I have two of them myself. One is a Eddystone mix-master and the other is a rare all Winchester in all most mint shape that was auctioned off at Gunbroker, which I got with a unbelievable cheap bid, due to the rifle being in a
    isolated misplaced category !

    heh. I have a pair of them as well, bought them from the CMP.

    One is a April 1918 Remington with a 2-19 Winchester barrel and a truckload of Eddystone parts.

    The other is a July 1918 Winchester with a 2-18 Remington barrel and quite a few of Eddystone parts.

    Both of them are in pretty good shape. I think they were loaner rifles locked away in a VFW safe for many decades before the VFWs returned them to the Army (which then handed them over to the CMP).

    At one point I strongly considered having the barrels swapped, but eventually decided to leave "well enough alone."

    Great old rifles, for sure !!! The one Dan is holding has a barrel date of July, 1918, and still shoots with excellent accuracy. Very nice trigger pull and great rear peep.... Awesome piece of history.
