Then there are all the Navy Shipboard Armories for Boarding or Shore Parties (anybody know when the Navy replaced the M1903 in the Fleet?), the MP/Airfield guards, the Red Ball Express and other non-frontline units that might have kept the '03 a bit longer, and some probably got used for Real.

And the '03A4 and USMC M1903A1 w/Unertl made it through the war and some use in Korea, with the last M1903A4 Field Manual being printed during the Vietnam War! CC
