Gentlemen,

First Happy Bird Day

Point of interest I think.
A Ordnance report dated March 2, 1937 shows the following:

Stats
Model 1903 901,548 of which 306,514 are in the hands of troops

Model 1917 2,174,855 of which only a small amount are in the hands of troops.

I wonder why so many 1917's as to Model 1903's ?
Just seems odd to me.

My sites with data and books and CD for sale. These are commercial sites. They also have Ordnance Data files posted there.
