Will the loading gate cover the screws? If you want to start a restoration I have a few early receivers but not as low as yours.

Thanks, but the modifications did not stop there.

1903 Springfield barrel ( beautiful bore ) , clipped striker head, ground sear surface, altered interior feed shelf.....


This receiver will be made into either a 30-30 Krag, or a wind chime clapper.

Ouch! I still remember seeing a Remington M1903 - 3,000,800 - the stock had been crudely cut down (it had a beautiful pristine "RLB" inspection stamp) and a 10-41 RA barrel. All kinds of atrocities had been performed on the receiver. It broke my heart

Doesn't look like there's anything left with which to attach either the loading gate or the follower arm. That serial#. Wow.

Wow. Looks like they even modified the bolt handle recess, presumably so they could stuff the early receiver into a Model 1898 stock.

Even so, double digit SN :bow:

The bolt recess flange was removed, yes.

It was in a sporter stock with beautiful grain........ like a fence post is beautiful.

Oh well, that’s what happens when surplus guns and their parts are cheaper than dog food.
