It was in remarkable condition, as was its 30-03 chambered bore.

You can post multi pics/links within a post, rather than one pic per post.

Someone long ago lightly scratched the initials JS into the wrist of the stock. They apparently wanted to identify this rifle easily among others.
I don't consider this damage because it's not a gouge in the stock or a carving. It's a light scratch.
It's interesting to imagine that this rifle could've been the very one that my grandpa, James Shippee, said he liked to use and admitted he marked to identify easily while at the Great Lakes Naval station where he helped build the rifle range and where he qualified as an Expert Rifleman with the 1903 in 1918. LOL

Here are some interesting perspectives on the differences between the old 30-03 Rod Bayonet 1903 and the Post 1905 1903.

The blade had never been sharpened.

The only area of damage on this rifle is here, on the handguard. Just a tiny chip of wood missing. It hasn’t any Linseed oil on it so the stock had received its last coat of oil Before the incidental damage.

Participating in a gun buyback program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids.

The Rod Bayonet rifle felt a bit heavier, a bit more solid and differently balanced in my hands than Post 1905 03's. I really liked it.

Did you ever shoot it? And if so how did it compare to the 03?

The peep sight sits at an angle so isn’t as clear as on the 1905 peep sight.
Other than that, it was just like pulling the trigger on any other 03, except that the 220 grain bullet ‘s muzzle velocity was 2200 fps, which didn’t feel bad at all against the shoulder.
