In 1906 the 1903 was upgraded to take the 30-06 cartridge. Thus M1906 variation.

Under the original question it doesn't appear an upgrade counts. The keyword is "originally."

Excellent, C3, the Browning Automatic Rifle(BAR) was the first weapon adopted by the U.S. military that was originally designed for the 30-06 cartridge.

C3, I was incorrect in stating your answer, the BAR, was correct, so the question as to what weapon originally designed for the 30-06 cartridge was adopted by the U.S. military, still stands.

M1917....
The P1914 was designed for .303 Brit... The BAR is designated as the M1918... So if it isnt the M1903, Its gotta be the M1917.
