After the end of WWI and termination of contracts for both the P14 and 1917 Enfield rifles, Remington decided to use the tooling and the large inventory of spare parts stored in its two arsenal plants (Eddystone and Ilion) to make a sporting version of the Model 1917 Enfield rifles at the Ilion plant by refining the contour of the action, shortening the barrel, adding a sporter type stock and cock on open Bolt Action. In 1921, they introduced their Model 30 High Power, cock on open Bolt Action, Sporting Rifle in caliber 30-06 Springfield. Remington built various grades and sight combination from 1921 until production stopped in 1940. Both Model 30 and the carbine variant stopped production in 1926 and were replaced by the upgraded Model 30 Express version. The upgraded Model 30 Express was available in .30-06 Springfield, .25 Rem, .30 Rem, .32 Rem, .35 Rem, 7mm Mauser, .257 Roberts.
