    WWll 1942 US .30 M1903 Remington/Springfield Rifle.

    Bought a Remington with the barrel dated 6/42. Mint. I can smell the cosmolineicon in the breech. doesn't look like it was fired. It came with what I believe is a vintage Rock Island/Springfield hybrid S stock. Also mint. The scripted mark I believe is ELV. a 1913-1917 Rock Island inspector. The blocked A.A.J is a SA inspector 1930. Has anyone seen something like this?

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    The stock is not a Rock Island stock and the inspection stamp, I am confident, is not ELV. The stock is an SA stock from the pre-1907 period. The boxed "A.A.J." is an overhaul inspection stamp from Augusta Arsenal post-WWI.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for the reply. The other possibility I came up with for the scripted mark is CV for C. Valentine 1898-1905. As far as the blocked A.A.J.....I thought that was an Augusta Arsenal overhaul also. But it is a SA M1903 Inspector, unknown, circa 1930. U.S. Inspectors Markings.

    Maybe you would mind showing more of the rifle? Would be interesting to see whether it is a high wood or low wood stock, if it has one or two cross bolts, if it has finger grooves, if the tip of the stock has a stamp and if yes which, which kind of P stamp it has behind the trigger guard, etc. Thanks!

    Is there any picture showing the left side of the receiver area to be able to tell whether it is a high or low wood stock? At least it seems to have been updated with two cross bolts, though still carrying the original early period acceptance stamps.
