Default North Store 03-A3

Just returned from the North Store with my latest purchase. Brought home a Remington M 1903-A3 serial #3463224 with RA barrel dated 2-43. Hang tag reads ME 1 and TE 3.5 with a Good Bore. Graded by J.B. 14 July 2017. Appears to be all Remington including an early pinned Remington stock. Very happy I dropped by today.


Hoping John Beard will chime and and tell me about this 03-A3!

Mr. Beards comments on my rifle:

"Thanks for your interest and inquiry!

And thanks for your patronage!

Your rifle, Remington M'03-A3, S/N 3463224 was one of eight rifles I inspected at the CMP on 14 July 2017. Indeed, it was the first rifle I inspected that day. I noted that your rifle was fitted with its original R.A./2-43, four-groove barrel. I had to replace the damaged handguard on your rifle and I fitted your rifle with a replacement bolt, probably because it was mismatched. The remainder of your rifle was factory original.

Thanks again for your patronage and for your interest and inquiry!

J.B.

p.s.,

Your rifle was one of forty-five rifles shipped to the CMP North Store in early November. The remaining forty-five rifles in the 90-rifle pallet were released in the CMP South Store."



I very much appreciate Mr. Beard responding to my inquiry and can't express enough how fantastic his services are. He is a gentleman indeed!

There were the usual c and d snipers as well as CMP specials but no field or service grade Garandís. 3 03-A3 s when I left at 1:00 pm. Lots of drill rifles in both Garand and 03-A3s plenty of ammo and a full box of slings.

Called at 2:30 about possibly getting one tomorrow. I was told one was left with very little chance of getting more until after the first of year.

stopped by the store at about 130 today, one 03a3 left, stock was rough without any stamps, but someone carved in something like JC on the left side of the stock. I seem to recall there being some seriously deep scratchs too, I honestly didnt look that close because at $650 I just wasnt interested. To bad too, they said it was the last one, I got the last 03a3 out of thatg store about 8 years ago and it is in much better shape!
