8/7/18 - This is an original WW2 production Remington 03-A3 rifle. The barrel is 1943 dated and original to the rifle. The metal parts have some dust (as shown on the front sight in photos), but overall are in excellent condition with some normal patina and light signs of use. The bore has good rifling and some light use wear. 8 out of 10 overall. The wood feels sanded and most likely has been, which explains why we no longer see the armory stamps on the wood. The only visible stamp on the wood is the "P" proof. The wood is excellent condition though with no cracks or chips. Guaranteed original and authentic.
