    1932 bbl

    I just examined an Estate Sale '03, 1,475,xxx, at a gun shop. 1932 dated bbl, no star gage mark.

    It is in a straight grip "03 stock, not an 03A3, ( no cutout for the A3 hg ring) but is without grasping grooves. It also has a well worn WWII era leather sling.

    No cartouches or proof marks. The stock is in excellent condition.

    My thought is that this is an '03 parts gun, with a Remington '03 stock.

    I have an early Rem '03 with similar stock, RLG cartouche, also without the 03A3 HG ring cutout, and without grasping grooves, to compare it to.

    How common were these non gg stocks? I have not found that Springfield ever produced an '03, non gg stock unless it was a C stock.
    It must be a Remington? right?

    Price is not bad, and I want that sling.

    What’s the price? If all you want is the sling, you have a lot of money in parts there to recoup the cost.

    Could be a Remington M1903 stock ... M1903s with those stocks are fairly common - either installed by former civilian owners or as the result of an overhaul. Springfield did not manufacture non-GG straight stocks - just Type C and Scant stocks during WWII.

    You tried to buy just the sling? If it's an estate then they might be willing to part with whatever makes money for the estate...

    Picked the gun up after some negotiating, as the gun was not original

    It had a complete Remington '03, (not 03A3") smooth body bolt assembly, (not a NS bolt as it should have had), and the aforementioned, un-cartouched '03 stock, also likely an "03 1942 era Remington.
    ME is at a "1", and the bore looks great.

    It looks like the fellow updated the gun for some reason, in years past.

    I do live near Illion NY, and the gun was owned by a local. The family said he had this gun for well over 50 years.



    '03's are not that plentiful anymore; most have been sucked up into the void of hungry gun buyers. It is added to my "03 and A3 collection.
    I am going to put this assembly into a NOS pistol grip stock that I have had for many years, and ponder what to do with the Remington stock.

    If it was an 03A3, it would sell quickly.
    The Rem' 03 stock market is pretty slim, especially for a stock with no FJA or RLB cartouches.
