Very Good Condition

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 1936.

However, the M1903 Springfield remained in service as a standard issue infantry rifle during World War II, since the U.S. entered the war without sufficient M1 rifles to arm all troops. It also remained in service as a sniper rifle during World War II, the Korean War, and 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 Germany
