Item No.: 9141 Price : SOLD
Description :
This is an original, WWII, U.S. Model 1903-A3 Rifle manufactured by Remington Arms in December of 1943 and chambered for the .30-06 Government cartridge. The Model '03-A3 was a simplified version of the Model 1903 Rifle that incorporated a number of stamped parts to speed production and decrease manufacturing cost. It also featured an updated aperture sight mounted on the rear of the receiver. This rifle is in very fine, original condition. It does not appear to have been rebuilt, remaining "as built" in 1943. The rifle retains about 98% of its factory parkerized and blued finishes. The trigger guard and floorplate group shows just a little wear. The mechanics are excellent. The Remington made barrel is dated "12-43" and has an excellent, bright shiny bore. The stock is in fine condition, with a couple of tiny dings from use. The inspector's cartouche is a light strike and the ordnance wheel is not visible. The initials of Frank J. Atwood, "F.J.A." are clear. The sub-inspector's marks and "P" firing proof on the underside of the stock are clear. The stock has rack numbers stamped on both sides. The right side of the butt is stamped "250583" and the left side is stamped "HG87". The only thing keeping this rifle from being in excellent condition is a hairline crack on the handguard that runs from the receiver ring forward about 7 inches. The crack is not open and does not affect the strength or serviceability of the rifle. This is a beautiful, untouched example of the WWII '03A3 rifle. Stock no. 24325
