4/12/18 - This is an original Reminton 1903-A3 rifle from WW2. The barrel is Remington Arms marked with a flaming bomb and 1943 date. The stock is properly cartouche stamped with an inspector initials as well. The stock is original to the gun and in excellent condition with no cracks or chips. The canvas sling is unmarked, but appears aged and period correct. The bore is very nice but there is some light residue / patina wear within the grooves - we rate at 8/10 overall. The phosphate is excellent on the receiver. The finish on the metal parts overall is excellent. Guaranteed all original and authentic.
