Remington M1903s vs Rem M1903A3 Quality?

Were the Remington M1903s better fitted or made to tighter tolerances than the Remington M1903A3s? I've heard people say that the Remingtons (all) were made on "worn out" Rock Island Arsenal tooling and therefore are not as well made as the Springfield rifles. Truth, fiction, half truth??? I believe it's the case that the A3s (all) were made to looser specs than the M1903s, so presumably there is some truth there, though they seem to have proven quite functional, reliable and accurate.
