Winchester Model 1907
The Winchester Model 1907 (also known as the Model 07), is a blowback-operated, self-loading rifle produced by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company beginning in 1906 with production ending in 1958. It was fed from a 5 or 10-round capacity, detachable box magazine located immediately forward of the trigger guard.
There is a completely unconfirmed opinion that supposedly weapons in French service used a larger 15 or 20 round box and some were converted to select-fire. In the end, it turned out that all rifles delivered to France were standard M1907, completed with magazines for 10 rounds. They were used to arm aviators, and there is no evidence of their use in ground forces. The only one weapon passed off as a "French trench version" ended up from Cody Firearms Museum (USA), S/N 47357, manufactured in 1935, with extra long magazine, sling swivels, and bayonet lug (for US M1892 Krag bayonet), was offered for sale only to law enforcement and penitentiaries. These rifles were first proposed by Winchester in 1934. The myth of "fully automatic conversion" comes from the mention of ordered rifles in one of the documents with the word "auto", although in those years this was a typical term for semi-automatic weapons.
