Barrel 10-12, not quite mint but real close to it. Was very pleased to get it. Serial number 500K range
I would have to look at it but many of the 1903 rifles were returned for refurbishing. Is there a stamping on the stock like: SAA, RAA, OG, AA or other 2 or three letter stamping? ie: San Antonio Arsenal, Rairitan Arsenal, Ogden Arsenal, Augusta Arsenal.rdj94a said:I agree, just keep wondering how something that old can be in that kind of shape? This thing doesn't look like it was issued?
..............I guess I orta put these up here. This WAS a really neat old Springfield sporter that belonged to my great grandfather. I shot it for years and years with factory ammo and handloads. What did it in was a double charge of H4227 behind a Ly 311284. To satisfy any curiosity the slug tripped the chrono at 3050 fps.
