They do not share the same name...............
Technically they are the, (Rifle, .303 Pattern 1914) and the (United States Rifle, cal .30, Model of 1917) but they were saddled with the label American Enfield, so I guess I will let it slide...............

Ya see, what had done happened was...

We were helping the british out, building some rifles for them. Then, when we got involved in WWI, ordnance found it would be pretty simple to take the same action, make a few changes, chamber it in the classic .30, and issue it to our own troops.

Here is my 1943 No 4 and the deer I harvested with it. I like to think that my Enfield was used to kill Nazis in 1943 and PA deer in 2009.

Real men shoot with iron sights!
