Default First find of 2019, 1909 Springfield 1903

First find of 2019 at a local show, it was a walk in....Everything appears to be original less the J5 swept bolt...It looks like it was a N. Carolina national guard rifle....I've been looking for an original pre WW1 rifle, non NRA, and this one fits the bill nicely...Comments welcome, thanks for looking...

Excellent -- Love those early (original) M1903s!

Splendid!

The only problem I see with it is that it's not in my collection.

Thanks for sharing!
