Remington 03-A3 Rifle

Dated 8/43 in .30-06

 

This rifle was purchased through CMP in 2004. It was an arsenal rebuild that arrived to the current owner still packed in cosmoline. Serial number dates it to August 1943 manufacture.

 

The walnut stock is in very good condition with what might be a rack number on the lower butt that was sanded over slightly at one time. The overall surface is a bit rougher than most I've seen with machining marks still showing in some areas. The finish is not as smooth as exhibited on the handguard. The metal parts are parkerized and finish is 95% or better. The bore is mint with the 2 groove rifling. Barrel is by Rock Island Armory and is dated 6/43. Original leather sling is included. 

 

Overall a very decent shootable gun.

 

 

FFL or C&R required.
