Nice work! 1922 trainer counts, of course.And last but not least, one of the first Milsurps I bought. An M1917 Eddystone, manufactured March of 1918 with matching barrel. This one doesn't seem like it had a lot to do in 1918, as it is in pretty good shape for it's age. I had a hard time finding a good cheek weld, since the comb is so different than 1903 pattern rifles. I shot this one last today, after about an hour with the other two I posted. Need more practice. I've shot this rifle in a run and gun match when I lived in Maryland a few years back, and it is absolutely one of the easiest rifles to run. Cock on close and the dog leg bolt makes rapid follow up shots easier than really any other bolt action I've dealt with (other than a No4 Mk1 enfield, of course).
Shot prone sling first string on left, sight is too low! 62 0X. Big fail. Should have sighted this in a bit better. I used a slightly different ammo load than I usually do in this one because I forgot the bandoleer of LC68 I had pulled out for it. Used some hand loads, and they did not go well. Second string, right target: 89 0X. Practice makes perfect.
