Very informative posts guys, thanks very much.
If it is a scant stock, does that mean its more of a M1903A1?
I did find another single "S" stamp under what I believe is the safety, the flap that says "ready" on the lower left side of the bolt action. I believe it is the safety, and the magazine cut-off is on the rear?
Disassembling this rifle is going to be interesting, but I want to get it cleaned and oiled.
Can't wait to take it shooting, either. Will this thing digest most 30-.06 or does it need a special round?
Thanks for the compliments on the rifle!
