    Interesting find...

    So I just got PCSíd to Rock Island Arsenal a few days ago and I just finished walking thru the museum. Itís a small museum but if you ever have a chance to walk thru it I recommend doing so. Despite its small size they have a lot of interesting variants and pieces, including the first ever 1903 to come off the line.

    Anyway, I walking thru the military rifles displayed and I come across a couple of 1903a4ís and one in particular caught my attention because itís topped with a Weaver K4. As far as I was tracking no K4 scopes were ever used with a4 rifles. The museum has binders with the documents on each rifle and sure enough itís cataloged as a 1943 built a4 with a K4.

    Probably means nothing since it was acquired in 1977 but I still found it interesting.

    I am by far an expert. But, from what I have read, there are a lot of different stories about what scopes were put on those rifles. In the rush to get them in the field, who knows?
