    Found: Post 1905 Solid Hump Handguard (Springfield 1902)

    I think I may have happened upon a post 1905 Solid Hump Handguard for the Springfield 1903. It has a crack and missing a bit of wood at the forward end both easy repairs (I have doner handguards). But don't know if this thing is real if it's not, I've only ever seen on in my life and it was mounted on the rifle.

    I compared it to my High Hump and it doesn't look to be a cut down handguard. What do y'all think?

    high hump 1903 hand guards

    Your high hump looks original to me (but I am not an expert) the fixture slot inside is important too for identification. Also the early flat top high hump has be reproduced over the years (also the ram rod bayonet hand guard too).

    I also have a high hump modified and shorten to fit and stamped with the S, still without hand guard clips Top hand guard is Remington 1903 without fixture slot. Rod bayonet hand guard is old repro

    RCS, Thanks I noticed that the stamp inside near the fixture slot looks to be like the one on yours, I can't tell for sure though. At $14.00 I didn't want to pass on it.

    Original high hump hand guards are very difficult to locate, many people are fooled by the Remington 1903 hand guard. I have some
    high hump hand guards that have a two digit number by the fixture slot inside. The last pre WW2 SA hand guard had the low profile
    and a drawing number

    Are the two handguards in your picture the same length? Is one longer than the other? Please advise.

    Thanks!

    Camera foreshortening on items side by side (lengthways) makes the farther back item seem shorter. I photographed two M1icon rifles side by side and the rifle in the background appeared several inches shorter. The pictures need to be taken from above, then there is no distortion,
