Item No.: 9893 Price : $3,995.00
Item : VERY FINE, UNTOUCHED, 1915 MFG., SPRINGFIELD US MODEL 1903 RIFLE
Description :
This is an original, pre-WWI, U.S. Model 1903 Rifle manufactured at Springfield Armory in 1915. It is chambered for the .30-06 cartridge. The Model 1903 was the standard U.S. battle rifle of the First World War. It continued in service through the Second World War. This rifle was one of the rifles sold through the Director of Civilian Marksmanship (DCM) between 1915 and 1917. As such, it remains in pristine, untouched condition, exactly as it left the Armory. It has not been rebuilt or modified in any way, except for a tiny NRA marking on the trigger guard just ahead of the magazine floor plate. The rifle is in very fine condition. The original blued finish shows little wear, but some areas have turned a smooth light brown. Most affected are the nose cap and rear sight sleeve. There is some light finish wear on the trigger guard. The heat-treated receiver has turned gray. The rifle has excellent mechanics and a very fine bore. The walnut stock is in very fine condition with a crisp "J.S.A." inspector's cartouche and "P" firing proof. There is some darkening of the wood at the butt plate. Please note that this is a "Low numbered receiver". It is recommended that these not be fired as the metal may be improperly heat treated. This rifle is for collector's purposes only. An '03 Springfield in "as built" condition is a rare find and will have an honored spot in any collection. Stock no. 28208
