    The guy doing the stick pointing has a M7 grenade launcher on his M1 rifle. I wonder how long he kept it, as it made his rifle a straight pull only... no semi-auto function.

    Three million serial number (3083538) makes it a Remington M1903... early 1942. They didn't come from the factory with full pistol grip stocks. Lot of modification / repair done to that stock.

    The bolt body is the only part of the bolt assembly that is special to the 03-A4. I don't like either of the ones shown. All of the other parts could (and are) a mix of M1903 and 03-A3 types.

    I mis-spoke, I see by the serial number (and photo) it is a Remington M1903. Vi-Shooter's pages show Remington M1903s up thru 3.4 million serial numbers, barrel date around 10-42 (?).

    From the serial number, I would assume the rifle is a Remington M1903A3.... (1943). When the DCM sold the M1903A3s back in the 1960s, they called them "Springfields" too!.

    "Sniper bullet" a good story, hard to prove or disprove, to avoid a statement of charges for the rifle muzzle stuck in the mud as a walking aid... (happened to a good friend of mine, it didn't work!)
