Standard Nomenclature List (SNL) B-4, U.S. Rifle, Cal. .30, M1917, 22 December 1941 - This 26 pages document (which includes eight picture plates, an addendum, and supplement) documents all parts to the M1917 rifle visually, by piece-mark (part / print number), stock number, and nomenclature item. This particular SNL also includes organizational spare parts, organizational equipment, ammunition, accessories, pricing (in 1941), and quantities of spares to support troops in battle. The pictures for this SNL came out in near excellent condition. Very honestly, I have yet to see a copy of this SNL for the M1917 rifle anywhere else, although I'm sure it's available. The document is stapled, but printed on 24# paper so there is nil bleed-through.

Rifle, U.S. Caliber .30 M1917 Development and Production 1917-1945 (Plus 1945 Supplement) - Written in August 1945 by the Small Arms Division, Industrial Service Office, Chief of Ordnance, ASF, Washington, D.C. Wow! Here's the contents: (1) Brief story of WWI; (2) Peacetime and the pre-war period; (3) WWII period; (4) Cost data; (5) Lend lease activities; (6) Appendix; and (7) Biography. It gets better. The 50 page stapled document with supplement discusses the activities of General McArthur in the Philippines, multiple contract awards and problems with Johnson Automatics Inc., the initial contracts with Remington and Winchester, improper maintenance and storage between the wars, foreign sales, reconditioning of rifles, lend-lease issues and problems, breakage of parts, war reserves, barrel problems, FBI investigations into illegal sales, modifications to equip the rifle to semi-automatic and automatic firing weapons, etc. Again, wow! You need about 90 minutes to 2 hours to read this 50 page document. I have priced it so that it is very affordable. The manual has been proper reconstructed for easy readability - it did not come that way from NARA. Finally, there's only one picture, but this is a great read that doesn't require any at all.
