That's sad. Bubba strikes.

upon removal of the front sight I was able to determine that the barrel is a 4-42 springfield barrel. as the serial dates to 1919 I am guessing that this is a civilian rebarrel as I can not imagine a post WWI rifle requiring a rebarrel so early in WWII. the front sight was JB welded on and hopefully will reblue quite nicely after it is cleaned up a bit.
That's the norm for the early '03's. Most all saw a C&R with new barrels for or during war2. It's getting harder to find a pre war2 with the original barrel.
