United States Rifle, Caliber .30-06, Model 1903, is a five-round magazine
fed, bolt-action service rifle, used primarily during the first half of
the 20th century.
It was officially adopted as a United States military bolt-action rifle
on June 19, 1903, and saw service in World War I.
It was officially replaced as the standard infantry rifle
by the faster-firing semi-automatic eight-round M1 Garand starting in
However, the M1903 Springfield remained in service as
a standard issue infantry rifle during World War II, since the U.S. entered

even in the early stages of the Vietnam War.
This example dates to 1911 but went through refurbishment at Remington
in 1942, with a very good bore.
The bayonet bar has been removed to allow post war issue & use in
