Re: 1903 Receiver - Bolt
Mine is on a US Rem version of the 1903, made in June of 1942. Figure it was sporterized in the 1950s, by the style of the walnut stock, low scope safety and recoil pad (which is now as hard as carbon). Still has the original GI barrel, shoots very well. Put an old K4 steel Weaver on it, which is about period-perfect for that rifle.
Also have another June '42 US Rem in full military configuration, except that the original stock has been cut back. Also an excellent shooter. Have killed deer with both of 'em.
