Check the marking again, please. I think you will find it reads:

U.S./REMINGTON/MODEL 1903 (not 1930).

It is a Model 1903, commonly called a "Springfield" since it was developed and most were made at Springfield Armory. At the start of WWII, the Army contracted with Remington to make the M1903. Later, the rifle was modified for easier production and re-named the Model 1903A3. The Model 1903A3 was made by both Remington and Smith-Corona.
