Whats an Eddystone? I spoke to a guy about some rifles he had for sale and he mentioned an "Eddystone" I've heard the name but don't know anything about them.

Eddystone was a manufacturer of Pattern 14 rifles for the British and M1917 rifles for the US during WW1.

I liek mine. Picked it up at a pawn chop for a good price. Suprisingly it's a great shooter.

The 1917 Enfield was more wildly issued and used in WWI than the home of the 30-06, the 1903.

EDDYSTONE ARSENAL

Remington Arms Co. of Delaware purchased a half-finished locomotive factory in Eddystone, Pennsylvania. This factory became known as the Eddystone Arsenal, producing Pattern 14 rifles for the British war effort and later the U.S. Model 1917 rifle. In 1918, the Remington Arms Company of Delaware was absorbed by the Midvale Steel and Ordnance Company
