My early M1903

Post by M14man »

My M1903 with '05 barrel. All early parts.Even the stock which shows the set back. Has a 1904 sling also.
Bought this in a pawn shop in 1983 for $180. Platinum line on sight.
Brass kit in buttstock.

Nice. I like the font of the numbers. Nice collector piece.

Hey,
I happen to have the close sibling to your rifle. Can anyone tell me anything about it?

And here I thought I was lucky to find one with a 1922 barrel!

Really like the early 03s--beautifully crafted by master workmen. I know pre WWII Mausers have a reputation for great craftsmenship, but I'll take an 03 anyday.
