Remington 1903-A3 From Cabela's
I very recently have purchased a 1903-A3 Springfield (Remington) from Cabela's. I found it on the used gun racks at the Rogers MN store. This is my first post with TFL. I have read through the Illustrated Guide to the '03 by Bruce Canfield but am looking for some additional insight into my particular rifle. The serial number and barrel date are within one month of each other; barrel 1/43 and receiver 2/43. The barrel bore is pristine. The stock does have the "OG" arsenal stamp but every other indication is that the rifle was not rebuilt as evidenced by the blued and not reparkerized furniture. Canfield does comment that the "OG" stamp is seen on many factory original rifles. Enough of my biased opinion; please look at the photos and let me know if I am on the right track or just wishful thinking.
