Deactivated American Springfield M1903 infantry rifle **SOLD**


This is a Springfield M1903 rifle, made at the Springfield Armoury, a rare rifle being one of a relative few made shortly before WW2, before production changed over to the Model 1903-A3.  Identical to the WW1 production rifles,  the serial number dates this example to 1937, but the barrel is dated 11-17 at the end  below the 'flaming grenade' and RIA symbols. Officially adopted by the US military in 1905, the Springfield saw service in WW1 but was replaced as the standard infantry rifle by the semi-automatic 8 round M1 Garand in 1937. However, the Springfield remained in service and production  during WW2, as the U.S. entered the war without enough M1 rifles to supply it's troops. Springfield Armoury production ceased in 1939, but it continued at Remington till 1942.  It also saw service as a sniper rifle during WW2, the Korean War and even in the early stages of the Vietnam War, as the Model 1903-A4, paying testimony to it's fine design. This particular example is in beautiful condition, with very good wooden furniture, and very clean metalwork with nearly all the original parkarised finish. It will cock and dry-fire, and can be fully field stripped. The locking screw on the rear sight slider has been lost, but its a part that can easily be found. Deactivated in the UK with Certificate to UK specification.
