The 1917 was not re chambered. It was built in both calibers. They were originally built for the Brits but when we ran short of 03's they built them in 06. I just remember what I could buy them for 50 years ago. I had a 17 and an 03 at one time.

I was taught to respect my elders but they are getting harder to find.
