My name is Steve Turner and I run the site www.combat-relics.com
We don’t deal in firearms but I occasionally come across a really good piece that I list here for collectors.
This is an UNISSUED U.S. Eddystone M1917 from WWI.
It is still in the grease and has the issuing tag with instructions for the soldiers receiving it. I have never seen anything comparable, and most of the time when someone states something is “unissued” it’s not often the actual case! This is truly unissued and truly very rare. I got it from the estate of another dealer. It is of course all original, all original bluing, and all stock cartouches intact. This would be literally impossible to upgrade.
This rifle is all original, never fired, and never cleaned. This is a true collectors piece and should be left as is, it would be a really shame to remove the tag, clean the grease, and bring it to range as this time capsule would be ruined forever. I am looking for a good home for this rare piece.

I am located in Ottawa and local pickup or inspection is possible. A valid PAL is required for a sale and can be presented in person. Shipping is also possible but I’ll need to still confirm your PAL.
