Can I ask what the serial number is? Very few M1903A3s were made in 1942. There are a couple of websites which have all M1903A3s listed as "1942".

S/N 3377xxx

Here's a lot more photo's of it, rather large ones, so didn't post them in a thread...

http://www.tdr4x4.com/im/g/03a3/

Barrel RA / bomb marking / 7-42 . underside of barrel is a P.
4 groove, looks bright and sharp, just dusty.

It seem whomever owned it for a lot of years, kept piling on the BLO or such, and all the metal was coated in it as well. Light cleaning after occasional shooting, and the greenish park is come through much more than seen in these photos which were taken right after I had gotten her home.

Inspected by and purchased through Orion 7.

1915 and 1919 NM:



1924 and 1931 NM:



(Sorry about the question regarding the M1903A3 at the top of the thread - I get so used to "reacting" to so-called "1942 M1903A3s" I don't remember the real thing! )

Well I have to join in. First two are my Remington M1903 (Red Star) and Remington M1903A3.




These are my North American Birch beauties. Top is a Long Branch No4.Mk1* unissued/proof fired only from 1943 and the bottom is a Savage No.4. Mk1* from 1943 also. Neither of the two have import marks and the Savage has some blood staining on the forearm. She's my shooter and has an amazing curled forearm. FWIW, I'm entertaining offers on the Long Branch.
