Guns For Sale - Rock Island Arsenal -- US MODEL 1903 RIFLE .30-06



This Rock Island Arsenal Model 1903 Rifle was purchased a last week from an estate by one of my drivers on an a local moving job. It is as found and has never been in a collection.

Rifle is clean overall and was in the same family for decades. The serial number (277478) indicates it was manufactured by RIA around WWI I believe. The barrel however is marked SA (Springfield Arsenal) and is dated 10-09 (see photo). There is a stamped ā€œAā€ below the date indicating it was arsenal checked after WWI and had a serviceable barrel that was not replaced (see photos). Bore remains bright/clean with evident rifling. There is some very light speckling/flaking to the metal components overall but most all of the dark gray/green finish remains (see photos). Stock is the two screw type, is clean overall showing average use and wear. It has rough grain in the cartouche area to the left side & no cartouche is visible (see photo). A circled ā€œPā€ behind the trigger guard remains partially visible (see photos). Buttplate is the later non-checkered style and trigger is the early serrated type (see photos). The bolt is straight (no sweep).

Great opportunity to add an early WWI era Rock Island Arsenal Model 1903 rifle to your collection. Very difficult to find any pre-1910 dated '03 barrel with such an excellent bore.
