The '''Fusil Automatique Modèle 1917''' (English: Model 1917 Automatic), or '''RSC M1917''' (RSC standing for its designers, Ribeyrolles, Sutter and Chauchat, who previously designed the [[Chauchat]]), is a French semi-automatic infantry rifle. Developed in 1917 and produced until the end of [[World War I]], it went into service with the [[French]] Army near the end of the war. The rifle was chambered in the same cartridge as the [[Lebel Model 1886]], with which it shared some parts. With 86,000 rifles manufactured before production ended in 1918, the RSC 1917 was one of the first semi-automatic rifles to be adopted on such a large scale. Very few rifles have survived in full, working condition, making them rare and highly sought-after collectibles.
