1903 Springfield 30-06 Rifle Made 1918 - HS Barrel

This Springfield 1903 rifle was made in 1918 (SN 836657) and served its country well earning a WWII rearsonalazation during which a High Standard 1944 dated barrel was installed (these barrels are known for superb accuracy). The stock bears the circled P proof at the wrist and the only other marking we can find is a small “3” stamped above the trigger on the left side. It comes with a 1942 dated BOYT leather sling. It retains a strong 98% (or better) metal finish with the only real loss on the bolt body and extractor (the metal has an ancient coating of dried preservative on it) while the bore is smooth and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and the stocks are completely sound with very few handling marks for an arm like this. A really nice 1903 that certainly hasn’t seen much use since being rearsonalized and has been in the same collection for the last 70 or so years while not being fired during that time.
