Now the CMP can change parts around on these some.

But yes to me, I have no doubt it was a Marine Corps rifle.

It's a great range.

Thanks Steve for your knowledge and input, very helpful. In this release of 1903’s I believe there may have been at least two, mine and Paul’s (not sure of Forum name) who was with Rob30.06 Saturday, but there was another that had several USMC rifle traits.... This was a good lot of rifles to include several Mark I’s also. Tom
