serial #1103450, 30-06, 24" 12-19 dated Springfield barrel with a very good bore that shows scattered light pitting and frosting but strong rifling. The metal surfaces retain 50-60% arsenal parkerized finish with overall thinning and fading. The walnut stock rates very good as lightly cleaned with an added oil finish, a faint "SA/JFB" cartouche, a few dings and handling marks. The stock has the cutout for the Pedersen magazine, the spindle is correct, the trigger is correctly smooth and the swept back bolt is marked "NS" on top and with an "F" on the underside. The rear band is loose, and an original black leather 1918 dated Hoyt sling is included that shows scattered crazing. A solid example of a 1903 Mark I rifle that has many correct parts. (208809-6) {C&R} (1000/1500) SOLD FOR $862.50
