    Question concerning a 1943 Remington 1903

    I traded into a Remington 1903 made in 1942 as per the Remington Collectors website that seems to be in very decent shape.

    Is this one of the modified 1903 that Remington was making and if so what is modified about them ?

    It came with a black handled long Bayonet with a Navy USN Mk 1 Scabbard blade marked SA 1918 and a wooden handled Long Bayonet also in a MK 1 scabbard marked SA 1916.

    Any Info on the rifles background or history would be appreciated

    Is that rifle marked to a ship's company? The bayonets are a nice addition, looks like you have a spot for them anyway. Nice gunpile...

    "Modified"

    "Modified" is, I believe, an unofficial designation. It applies to Remington M1903s that have some stamped, rather than machined, parts, that facilitated mass production. Magazine & floorplate in one piece, as opposed to 3 pieces, not counting a spring and pin. Butt plates, sling swivels, lower band, etc. When comparing an M1903 with an M1903A3, the "Modified" is like the stage in between..An '03 with some '03A3 parts....The stock on your rifle is a replacement, made by Springfield Armory. A Remington made stock should (for your rifle) have an "RLB" cartouche, with no finger grooves in it. Good looking rifle!
