    1917 LN serial, Rearsenaled at CSAA (stamped stock; barrel: '42). Non sporter, two cross bolt (S?) stock. Leaf sight, all intact.

    $550

    Shoots just fine. Will take pics for very serious buyer. FTF, license recorded.

    We need to see some photos. Is this a 1903 or 1903 A1.what is the serial#? Is this a scant stock or C stock?

    If the serial number relates to a 1917 production date it can NOT be a M1903A1 as they entered service in 1930. And almost all were sold to NRA members which would rule out the arsenal rebuild the stamp on the stock indicates.

    Also if it is a 1917 production rifle it falls solidly in the LOW SERIAL NUMBER range that is recomended to not be fired due to the remote possibility of a brittle receiver. Any serial number under 800,000 falls into this group. 800K happened sometime in late Feb 1918 to Mar 1918.

    My own Springfield is #779,XXX and falls inbetween Starting to use pyrometers to help correct the heat treating problems (around #750K) and the complete revamping of the heat treating process at 800K.

    SO it is very important the serial number is known.

    Yes, it's a very low serial. Finger groove. I've shot it and it has not blown up. :)

    I will get pics up when I get back.
