    1903 sedgely industry rifle?

    picked up a really nice condition 1903 at a lgs because there was something odd looking about it but couldn't quite see it, other than a wrong middle band. sn in 488k range w/pepper pitting below the wood line, single bolt stock, w/good bbl but no markings. when I disassembled it I found the following:
    unmarked heavy bbl, will not close on go gage w/o pressure, rear sight marked w/circle s,
    two piece handguard split under the band
    front bayonet lug w/screw on the wrong side
    middle band w/screw on same side
    takes krag bayonet
    stock has NO rear metal bushing.
    is this indicative of a sedgely "industry" rifle made in ww1?
    if so, any collector value?
    I initially purchased it for the stock, which was really nice.
    any help appreciated, thanks

    Not made in WW1 since the receivers were not available until the 1920's.....but it does sound like the "text book" Sedgely. It also probably has a M1917 trigger guard and floorplate.

    Sorry.......I'm confusing the Sedgely builds with the Bannerman builds which used M1917 trigger guards and floor plates.
