I had a chance to take a look at my Uncle's 1903 Springfield this weekend. Very neat rifle! It has never been fired and the chamber was still caked in grease. I had never seen one up close and I just remember thinking that lugging that thing around on the battlefield would be a bit of a chore.
When he first brought it out I thought is was an M1 Garand. They looked very similar. Anyway he wasnt sure about the value of the gun so I thought I'd ask the experts! I really dont have any more details but thought I would ask... Thanks
