    OK, I can't find my Brophy 1903 Springfield book, so a pop quiz for the collective: What is the correct metal finish for a Remington 1903A1 (NOT A3)? Black or gray-green Parkerizing?

    Stoney,

    Just curious...what color is your BOLT? Does it match the rest of the rifle?

    The green was caused when the rifles were stored for years in cosmoline. Original rifles were black or greyish park
