    I have cleaned her up a bit more and I think it is clearly worth chasing down the parts; Gun Parts Corp has them all for a little over $50 total. I think I'll try to find an original Remington marked floor plate and follower first as the rest of the parts are probably unmarked. Attached are pictures after a little cleaning. The 11 at the top of the butt I'm guessing is a rack number but I am wondering what the numbers on the bottom are?

    Looks like a drawing number. I'm not as good at that stuff as some fellow forum members...but I'd wager it's a pretty uncommon marking!

    The one I have still has it's original finish. The only thing that's been changed is the stock. I don't think it has USMC lineage. How would one tell?

    I do believe that stock and buttplate are Marine. The barreled receiver I don't think so. The only M1903's the Marines received during WWII, were used and acquired off the Navy in 1942.

    Starting in Feb 1943, the Marines Corps realized they had a surplus of M1903's and started to give not only rifles, but all their parts and pieces to the anyone who had basically a need.

    So a lot went to the Navy and Army. I think that stock was once Marine and given to the Navy or Army and was put on that barreled action. Or it was swapped out in the civilian world. Either are possible.

    I would personally like to have that stock if you would sell it. I PM'd you. I would pay a decent price for it, or I would give you a nice fingergroove and cash for it. I have a Marine rifle I would like to restore.

    iron sights glad to see you're keeping it it's a great looking rifle. Think your right on the "R" stamp on just the follower and floor plate but getting the needed parts, to get it up and running, then look for the "R" marked parts sounds like a plan. Happy hunting

    The D1836 is the C stock drawing number while the other numbers may be the rifle serial number it was issued on not sure. Hard to see in the pic if there are 7 numbers

    Careful on R-marked floorplates. There was a sub-inspector at SA who also used an "R".

    Those numbers along with the SA/SPG indicates that the stock came off a late M1903A1 Springfield National Match rifle. The number preceded by the C is the drawing number for the stock and the other number is the serial number of the NM rifle which originally came in the stock.
