Remington 03-A3 Springfield 30-06 Rifle 1944 Excellent

This Remington 03-A3 rifle was made in 1944 and bears a serial number of 4055794 with jives with the barrel date of 8-44. It seems to be in original condition according to Harrison in his definitive THE COLLECTABLE 03 with Remington marked parts and the correct inspection marks. It has no evidence of being refinished and seems to have escaped hard service (when I started in this business 57 years ago new 03-A3s could be had for a song). It eventually fell into the hands of a highly accomplished High Power Service Rifle competitor who took it to the National Matches in Camp Perry, Ohio where it served him well. It retains about 95% metal finish with almost all the loss on the bottom metal while the 2 groove bore is a perfect mirror; bright, smooth and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and the stock is completely sound with a rack number at the heel and only a handful of light handling marks. A really nice example of what was once common-place to find but now is as scarce as an honest reporter.
