    Well the adoption papers finally went through and my new baby is at home. Here is my 1903 Springfield manufactured in 1918! It is a High SN Springfield. Oh, and I only paid $550 for it!!!

    Nice rifle!

    Don't take this the wrong way, but it's been rebuilt or at a minimum restocked.

    That's a 1903A3 "Scant" stock.

    Keep your eyes open for a 1903A1 "C-type", or a 1903 finger groove straight stock, it would be more appropriate for the earlier Springfield or Rock Island 1903 actions.

    This a 1903 w/finger-groove stock:

    This is a 1903 w/1903A1 pistol grip "C" stock (from my own collection):

    I like it!

    Note. The general purpose AK adjustment tool that you are useing to prop up the Springfield for photo's should NOT be used on the Springfield
