**Remington Model 1903-A4 Rifle

.30-06, 24" barrel, S/N 3419274. Parkerized finish, walnut two bolt, pistol-gripped C-stock. Standard three-line Remington receiver markings correctly offset from scope mounts with the serial number on the other side. Counterpane with smeared but visible original Remington FJA cartouche and weak RA mark. Soft {Circle-P} proof on face of pistol grip. Stock marked S in safety cut out. Barrel marked RA / {Ordnance Bomb} / 7-43. Blued bolt with correctly bent and dished, R marked bolt handle. Serial number of receiver and barrel date appear appropriate for each other. Equipped with Redfield scope mounts and M82 telescopic sight S/N 40881. Includes a leather M1905 sling. Originally the 03-A4 was mounted with a Weaver M73B1 scope for WWII service, but some rifles were later upgraded to the M82 scope that also saw use on the M1C Garand. This rifle was likely rebuilt during its service life and may have been upgraded to then M82 scope for use during the post-WWII era.

Provenance:From the Collection of Charlie Hinton

Condition:

Very good. Retains much of the finish on the metal with clear markings. Stock sanded with weak, smeared markings. A number of partially legible stamps are present on the stock belly, forward of the magazine floor plate suggesting a rebuild or two in the rifles past. Mechanically functional, very good 4-groove bore that is lightly frosted with some oxidation and needs to be cleaned.
