Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Into what category does the Eddystone Model of 1917 fit?

I have a nicely sporterized Eddystone Model of 1917 but I don't know which category to put it into. US? British?

Its an American modification of a British designed rifle that was manufactured in the US.
I would consider using the American rifles section.
The M1917 was used more in combat than the M1903 in Europe in WWI.
I continued to be used right through WWII, though not by US combat troops.
Arguing with someone who denounces reason is like administering medicine to a corpse.

I was thinking along those same lines but did not have the knowledge you have. Thanks.
