I believe this to be a restoration to a 1920+/- rebuild program.
It is 'parts correct' for that time frame.

The receiver is a 1903 mfg, possibly 1st mo production,
but I am not sure.



The bolt is straight and not bent, indicating early usage.

The bbl is a 2/19 AV replacement bbl.

The stock is a correct DAL cartouche,
but appears sanded,
maybe done in the refurb process, maybe later.

All indications are that this was a War Horse in the trenches,
in the Green Fields of France that got Rebuilt at SA post WWI,

then it went wherever and wound up w/ somebody who put the straight bolt on it and maybe a couple other parts.

Or it just wound up this way and got released to 'we the people'.

Who knows,
but it is a representation of a vintage WWI rifle That made it thru the War,
got rebuilt,
and saved for the future.


Being early the official statement is:
"Shoot at your own risk".



$625

This was first chambered in the 30-03 cartridge.

Prefer FTF SE PDX/ Milwaukie area.
