Definitely the Remington. And the Smith-Corona does indeed appear to be arsenal overhauled. The "R" underneath the bolt handle should be a large "R", much larger than the "R's" stamped on the other small parts. But even with a replacement bolt, the rifle is still an outstanding value.

Well sweet! I’ve got a browning b78 to shoot this weekend. If it doesn’t impress me there maybe some horse trading getting done!

If I were you I would grab that Remington before someone else does. It is an especially good deal at $1050. Don't hesitate and let someone else beat you to it.

They’re closed for the weekend but I plan to run in there as soon as they’re back open! Maybe I’ll get lucky and my M1 carbine will be ready to pick up and can make it a double ww2 day!

All this talk bout Remington 03s made me drag my other 03 out. Any chance y’all can help me identify the builder on this one? I typically don’t like sporter rifles but the quality on this one was the nicest I’ve come across. Only markings I can find on it is 30imp on the bottom of the barrel, a mashburn trigger and a circle M on the bolt handle (is that from its military days?)

Can yall tell me what would be the "correct" sling for this 41/42 1903? Would it be a M1907, Kerr or web sling?

Sling + WWII + "correct" do not all go in one statement.
Assuming the rifle was made in 41/42, you can also consider the period depicted. That's a bit early to have been initially issued with an M1 Websling, but slings were changed/replaced for countless reasons.
Read up on it, pick one and buttstroke anyone who tells you it's isn't correct (unless you asked for their opinion)

None of the above. An M1927 sling.

p.s.,

Oops! An M1923 sling.

After some googling is that the shortened KERR for the 1927 Thompson or completely different critter?
