Default Weapons Trivia

I find challenging other's knowledge regarding weapons to be interesting. Anyone with a trivia question should consider posing it on this thread. I will begin with a weapons trivia question. What was the first military weapon adopted by the United States military that was originally designed for the 30-06 cartridge?

What weapon did an Israeli company develop and is now used (a variation) in the US military?

Try M1906. Modified the 30-03 used in the M1903.

If not the 1903 Springfield, which Springfield were you referring to?

I'll take a stab at this- M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle. The 1903 rifle was DESIGNED for the 30-03. The 1917 Enfield was DESIGNED for the .303 Enfield. The BAR was the first DESIGNED to use the 30-06.

Now that C3 is in the game, the rest of us can't win.
