I got this gun years ago, cannot locate a maker or model number on this gun. Wood stock 30-06 stamped on barrel. Only markings are two concentric circles with either a flame or wing coming off outside circle. Has that logo in 4-5 places on barrel receiver and other parts. perhaps supposed to look like target with flame or wing. Any ideas??? thanks for your help.

I've seen the circles with a wing on a eddystone model of 1917, but it could be on a lot of old guns?

springfield or enfield. flaming bomb in circle proof? is it a ladder sight or a peep sight? does it cock on opening or closing.

ok, looks like it is a remington model of 1917, removed scope mount and found info and serial number. ...stamped year date is BL123...I gather that means it was made in January, how do I know which L it is on the remington chart, 1942 or 1964? also, what does the 123 mean??

Looks a lot like my 1917 sporter, but can't really tell from the thumbnails for sure. Here's a shot of mine: http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x36/grahlaika/1917.jpg

Post the pics on here. I can't view those pictures, and I assume most others can't either.
