Default M1903 Springfield





Here's my M1903 with a freshly installed Criterion barrel. I got the rifle from CMP from a few years ago. CMP warned that many of the barrels were shot out, and sure enough there was no rifling left. I couldn't find a barrel anywhere but fortunately CMP started selling new barrels a year or two after I got the gun. I also had to buy a new sight leaf and magazine spring. The magazine spring literally crumbled in my hands; after all the gun is from 1919, I think. It turned out to be an expensive rebuild, but the M1903 has always been my favorite rifle.

Nice looking rifle. I'm a sucker for C-stocks. I have them on both of my 03s, a Springfield and a Remington 03A3.

Nice rifle. I have an original 03A3 and am building up a complete barreled receiver 1903 Mark I which I purchased from another Calgunner. I love shooting my 03A3 more than most of my other rifles.

1903's are a classic rifle that you should be proud of owning.

Nice rifle. I had a sporter M1903 that I was thinking about restoring but it was going to cost a lot of money. It was missing too many parts.

It's a Boyd's. I'm pretty good at refinishing stocks but I ruined the issue stock trying to float the barrel.
