Kind of mad about the claims regards 4th Marines as those guys had been marched off on the Death March and the survivors were in POW camps.
I donít think coming from a museum adds any provenance. Theyíll accept any donation and usually arenít knowledgeable about the intricacies of these rifles. The Marine Corps museum is fantastic, for example, but often get small details about weapons and equipment wrong.

And yeah, pretty brazen on the 4th Marines claim.

Anyone notice the 1911 Remington Rand that he is also listing? Unit marked! Havenít seen one of these mentioned on the CMP 1911 forum. Would surely be an auction gun. Also same provenance, amazing.

If you zoom in on the barrel markings you can still see an imprint of the ordnance bomb and the old barrel date, not to mention the USMC isn't even centered.

The funniest thing is that the guy contradicts his own lies, like he’s not even trying. He says it’s one of the rifles the army gave to the Marines in 41 but it has a barrel date of 31 and a USMC stamp.

I once saw where someone ground off the markings on an 03A3 and attempted to re-engrave them on the sides like an A4. It just blows my mind, the lengths people will go to to counterfeit something.

I remember that rifle and was trying to find pictures or the auction of it recently. It looks like it was a couple years ago and the pictures are gone off gunbroker.

It sure looks like cold blue around the fake barrel markings, and some sort of leather colored shim under the bayonet lug. It shows in several photos.
