January, 1944. Look under the serialization charts.

Remember, on vishooter's website to differentiate between the date of manufacture table and the serialization chart. The latter is just a list of serial numbers with barrel dates that people off the interbet have sent him.

Default Here is a good one...

I'm not sure if anyone has visited this site, but it has a lot of info on it too! It has dates of manufacture for almost all US military weapons and a few commercial manufacturers too.


http://oldguns.net/sn_php/milmods.htm


According to the site...

The year of manufacture for serial number 4168420 is 1942.

Remington 1903A3 production started in 1942 at number 3348086.

The site to use and trust is VISHOOTER's site for all things 1903 and 1903A3. The oldguns.net site is well known for bad, bad data for the Remington 1903A3s.
