jp,

All N.E.W. m/91's are stamped 1915.

Top gun in this photo is my N.E.W M91, the bayonet is by Remington [r] its the original lock-ring type, later they used the more commonly found today socket with press stud. We will probably never know the exact year all these N.E.W M91's were manufactured because all were dated 1915, they were manufactured over three years of production. (Four calendar years.) but it is assumed that the majority were produced in 1915 for Russia, later the U.S. In 1918 the U.S. government contracted N.E.W. for a further 200,000 rifles.

The rest of the MN from top to bottom are:
M91/30
M91/38
M91/44
M91/59
Russian SKS
