    Highly unlikely there is such a thing as a drawing for a shipping box. Probable that the 1903 and M1icon used the same crate though. Keep in mind that it's just a box that we in the CF would call Class C stores. As in not returnable.
    Found this for the M1 on another forum.
    "18" wide, 49 1/2" long and 13 1/2" deep." "Cover is composed of 1 X 4's".
    Google shows a bunch of good pictures via a search for "M1 Rifle shipping crate".

    well I did find the blue prints here
    https://www.milsurps.com/showthread.php?t=20878
    page 72/73 problem is I cant get them to print with any clarity and seems any attempt to enlarge the image only makes matters worse.

    I dont have a shop or the time or space to cut/fit/check re cut. I can how ever when doing other projects around the house when I have all the tools out is cut several boards here and there and then finally assemble.
