New to me 1903

Post by eboggs »

Picked this one up recently. Ive had a soft spot for pre war C stocks lately and couldn't pass this one up. Id like to think this is an original 1903A1, but, wishful thinking. ;)

Nice Looking rifle! Have you had a chance to fire it yet?

I have a question about the pre-war C stock. DO you think it was original to the rifle? I had heard that C-Stocks were used on the early 1930's on A1's, arsenal rebuilds, NM and DCM rifles and some target rifles? I think that some std production rifles were also supplied with C-stocks? The reason I ask is that I have a 1.44 Springfield ( 1934 ) and was told that the most correct stock would have been a finger groove S stock.

Let me know your thoughts? Your rifle looks to be in great shape! Thanks for posting.

This is good to have for 03 lovers..
EDIT I am sorry it does not enlarge enough to read it. The download is easily readable, but the forum must automatically shrink it down.
