Normally Thursdays and Saturdays are the busy mornings, today was a surprise. I think tomorrow may be busy with all the really nice 1903ís I saw at closing, some really nice rifles.... good luck to all who may make it...

I will say this about you Tom! When we went into the BUSH we always picked people we could depend on. Rob 30-06 is one of those. Good chose!

The bottom one is of the second and later type serialized maintenance tag he spoke of. Just so happens that rifle belongs to me. For verification purposes I have added the CMP blue tag.

Anyone have a tag with someone other than SSGT Simons as the armorer?

Dumb question but...

What are the M1C, M1D, and 03's generally priced at? I know that is a broad question, but any ballpark?

Thanks!

The 03s have been field grade and price at $650.

Remember there's also a 10% sales tax because Anniston wants all of our money.
M1C SA SG, 3020.00

M1D WRA RG, 1555.00

1903ís 650.00

All plus 10% tax.

21 open holes in the racks at closing today.
3 1903’s all with dark bores in the rack.
Told no more Springfield rack grades to be put out but some nice Winchester’s will be put in the racks tomorrow morning.
I plan on stopping buy at opening before heading back to Nashville. Picked up a web sling and a oiler.
Also went to the taladega shooting park. A lot of specials in the racks and ihc’ In hacaberry’s a lot of m1c’s and m1d’s there.

Default Well, better late than never

With a 4 1/2 hour return drive home this report is a bit tardy and maybe of little value, but then you get what you pay for

At opening there were 7 customers, including myself and the Armorers were Bobby and Hunter.
The racks were full with"
IHC Service Grades - 17
IHC Field Grades - 5
Springfield Field Grades - 7
HRA Field Grade - 1
1903 - 7 (all I saw were Springfields with most being Mark 1s)
Winchester Service Grades - 1
Winchester Field Grades - 10 (one was a Win13)
Specials Service Grade and Field Grade - 11
308 Specials - 1
M1C - 1 (nice)
M1D WRA Rack Grade - 1
SA 6 mil - 4

Three of the 1903s vanished from the rack almost immediately and 4 were still there when we left.
One lucky customer found what looked to be a fully correct IHC Service Grade and it was really a very nice rifle indeed. Lucky guy for sure.
Also saw what I think was the best GAW stock I have ever seen in the wild. Virtually a nicely struck stamp and minty condition and abiding on a Winchester Field Grade?? A lack of funds prevented me buying it just to get the stock. Someone will really score with that wood. Oh yea, it had a service grade quality upside down late '42 SA barrel on it as well.
Found another IHC Service Grade that lacked only the Wood, a Bolt and Follower Rod being correct and it was wearing a really nice post war Springfield stock to boot.

I ended up purchasing the IHC Service Grade (1+/2+) that had the NAVMC Inspection Tag dated June 1956 with the serial number that matched the rifle it was on. I will be checking with Jim Adell to see if this rifle is noted in his Navy Serial Number List, though that would just be the icing on the cake. The IHC is a really nice-looking specimen but not many IHC parts other then the barrel and receiver.

Since tags are a subject of discussion here are some photos of the one on my rifle.
