At the start of World War I Great Britain was woefully short of small arms of all types.

The American firms of Remington Arms and Winchester were asked to supply 1.1 million rifle according to a new pattern established in 1914. When the United States entered the war in 1917, the U.S. government took over the contracts. The caliber was changed from the British .303 to the U.S. .30-06 and 3.7 million U.S. Model 1917 Enfield rifles were produced.

This volume contains a wealth of details regarding the 1914 and 1917 rifles and their component parts and accessories. I have one criticism. That is that it is balanced much in favor of describing the 1914 model and British detail to the detriment of some details re the 1917. A prime example is the WWII rebuilds that form a large portion of the current population. The replacement barrels by High Standard and Johnson Automatics are mentioned in passing without detailing their differences from the original RA, W And Eddystone. Disposition of these rifles, and more on their service during WWII would have been helpful. In fact, I would recommend that the section on rebuilds be treated separately from the other areas of the book to assemble all facts in one place.

Great book for the "American Enfield" collector. Goes into extreme detail piece by piece. No part of your rifle won't be covered in this book. There is some historical background from which I learned a great deal. But mostly technical data on each part. Also excellent coverage on cartouches and arsenal stamps. Highly recommended.

This is a solid reference book on the P14 and P17 rifles. I new some of the stuff presented in the book. However, the details were so well presented I had to go back in my safe and pull out my rifles to see the markings and how they presented a story about my particular firearms. Solid book! Well worth the money!!
