This is a good example of WWII Army contract Remington Model 1903A4 sniper rifle that was manufactured in the first block of serial numbers. These rifles were issued during WWII, again in Korea and even Vietnam. The replacement barrel is marked "R A/Ordnance Bomb/4-43" and the receiver is marked "U.S. /REMINGTON/MODEL 03-A3" correctly offset on the left side. The rifle has the correct 1903A4 sniper rifle bolt with the "R" mark on the underside of the bolt handle. The rifle has a Redfield marked scope base installed on the receiver, and mounted with an M73B scope, serial number "7635029". Fitted with unmarked stamped blue barrel bands, and a replacement incorrect M1903 solid milled trigger guard. "C" stock with a fat grip, and marked with a spurious crossed cannon cartouche on the left above the trigger guard, and an "X" in the magazine cutoff notch. Fitted with a tan canvas sling. Front sight blade is absent.

Rating Definition:

Very fine as partially refinished and assembled, with 95% of the current mixed parkerized finish. Displaying light handling and cycling marks. The wood is very good as sanded and oiled, with light indentations throughout. Scope is very good, with some light red oxidation, clear markings, and clear optics. Mechanically excellent.
