Better known here in the Philippines as the Enfield rifle. Majority of the Philippine Army troops were issued this rifle. . The M1917 Enfield had a 26 inch heavyweight barrel 2 inches longer than the 1903 sringfield. It weights 9 lbs. 3oz. (4.17 Kg)empty, and with a rifle sling, oiler and a fixed bayonet weighed over 11 pounds. For smaller stature Filipino soldiers it was difficult to use. Produced by several contractors, namely, Remington, Winchester, and Eddystone, a subsidiary of Remington.
Also the Enfield was plagued with a weak extractor, the leaf spring that powered the ejector can break off and render the ejector inoperable. Thus, many Philippine Army soldiers rifles jammed and they resorted to making bamboo sticks to insert inside the barrel and ram the spent cartidge out, and in some cases rifles exploded in soldier's faces. All this while facing a Japanese banzai attack.
When my father was still alive he mentioned to me that before the war, there was a scandal involving a Filipino West Pointer who was court marshaled because he claims that most of the Enfields that was shipped to the Philippines was defective.
