The M1903 Springfield, formally the United States Rifle, Calibre .30-06, Model 1903, is an American clip loaded, 5 shot, bolt-action service rifle used primarily during the first half of the 20th century. It was officially adopted as a United States military bolt action rifle on June 19, 1903, and saw service in WW1. It was officially replaced as the standard infantry rifle by the faster firing semi-automatic 8 round M1 Garand starting in 1937. However, the M1903 Springfield remained in service as a standard issue infantry rifle during WW2, since the U.S. entered the war without sufficient M1 rifles to arm all troops. It also remained in service as a sniper rifle during World War 2, the Korean War, and even in the early stages of the Vietnam War. This rifle is in excellent condition. Its metalwork is undamaged with excellent original finish and its woodwork is complete and undamaged. It is crisply stamped on the breech housing 'U.S. Springfield Armory Model 1903' and serial '521017'. The muzzle end of the barrel is date marked '10-12' (October 1912) and with the Frankford Arsenal ignited grenade mark together with 'SA' (Springfield Armoury). It has a steel butt plate with trap, bayonet lug, block & blade fore sight, adjustable ladder rear sight & sling swivels. Deactivated to UK/EU specification the weapon cocks and dry fires perfectly. The price for this iconic U.S. WW1 and WW2 rifle includes UK/ EU deactivation certificate and UK delivery. Sn 13937
