Item No.: 9478 Price : SOLD
Item : VERY FINE, WWII, REMINGTON U.S. MODEL 1903A3 RIFLE, .30-06
Description :
Here is an original, WWII, U.S. Model 1903A3 Rifle manufactured by Remington in 1943. (The receiver was actually manufactured in 1942, but the barrel is dated "2-43". 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 condition. It retains nearly 100% of its factory Parkerized finish. The exception is the butt plate, which shows wear and scratches, and has been re-Parkerized. While an original plate, its condition does not jive with the condition of the rest of the gun. The mechanics are excellent. The bore is in fine condition, but needs cleaning. The stock is in fine condition, but looks lightly sanded or "boned". There is a visible "FJA" cartouche on the left side of the wrist and a "P" behind the trigger guard. I don't see any rebuild or reinspection marks. The receiver and barrel markings are crisp and clear. This is a great example of the WWII '03A3. Stock no. 25258
