Default 1903 National Match at Auction

Ran across this rifle in email I received tonight. They claim its a national Match rifle but I am really skeptical. Mostly one the fact that there is very little info provided. I see an odd sight accessory attached and thats it. Curious what you think.

Not on SRS - a couple of NM rifles "nearby" in the listings. If not on the list, it would behoove the seller to provide more proof - better pictures and/or description.

Handguard is a replacement.

Photos suck, but from what I can see, I'd be dubious about that bolt too.

The rifle may or may not be a National Match rifle. Most likely, it's not. A mismatched polished bolt and a rear sight cover does not make a National Match rifle.
