Item No.: 9228 Price : SOLD
Description :
This is an original, WWII, U.S. Model 1903 Rifle manufactured by the Remington Arms Company in late 1942 or early 1943. Remington had acquired the M1903 production equipment, gauges, and blueprints for the '03 from Rock Island Arsenal in May of 1941. They planned to produce a modified version of the rifle in .303 caliber for the British. It quickly became evident that the Remington '03 Rifles would be needed to equip U.S. troops and the rifles were produced as originally built in .30-06. This rifle is in very good condition. It has undergone at least one reinspection/rebuild as evidenced by the WWII Springfield Armory replacement bolt handle and a WWII High Standard replacement barrel. There is also a small armory repair to the stock just ahead of the trigger guard. The rifle has about 95% of its parkerized finish remaining, with just a bit of wear on the edges. The mechanics are excellent. the barrel is very good. There is a little light pitting towards the muzzle, but the rifling is strong along the barrel's length. The original Remington stock is in very good condition with the usual scattering of small dings and scratches from use. There is a faint "R L B" acceptance cartouche visible on the left side of the stock. Included is a WWII, green M-1 web sling in good condition. This is a nice WWII production '03 Rifle. Stock no. 24468
