Looks all correct, large barrel runs were common so yes the barrel if 12-43 could and is likely correct. This is a typical Ogden OG marked rifle, had any significant parts been replaced it would be wearing OGEK. I believe this rifle is all original from a quick glance at the pics.

Outstanding buy. I would not have hesitated to buy that at even $7-800.00

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 stock is correct for a later M1903A3. The OG probably indicates a post-WWII inspection or overhaul. Nice rifle for the money!

Hi Sir,

I think you STOLE it! That is one NICE rifle.
If that is a standard military bullet, I think it would gauge at 1 or 1 1/2 which is basically NEW!

Don't let anyone talk you into altering it in anyway.

Maybe (LIGHTLY)clean the stock with Murphy's oil soap or other recommended quality wood cleaning product.
Lots of good info here at the site! The fellows here will guide you, if you ask.

Maybe a coat or two of BLO or Tung oil to prevent the stock from drying out. I would do inside the barrel channel & remove the metal butt cap to allow the BLO or Tung oil to penetrate the end grain.

That rifle is a Historic survivor! Keep it in the family or adopt one of us, so we can save it, far into the future!

May you use it well, for the next 100 years,
