    Springfield Model 1903 A2 30.06 – Historic Rifle

    I have a Springfield Model 1903 A2 30.06 that I am posting for a relative. This rifle was sporterized at some point. It comes with the leather sling, and Lyman X4 Power scope. The interesting part is the history of the rifle. The 1903 A2 started its life as an artillery sub-caliber device. Sometime after WW2 it was given a new barrel and the A2 markings were added. There were only approximately 100 A2 rifles ever made. Unfortunately the rifle was altered from its original condition, the stock was cut and the receiver drilled and tapped. Doing so took away from its value greatly. That being said, it’s still a great hunting rifle with a colorful history. Below is a link for information on the rifles past life.

    “The Model 1903A2 is essentially a M1903 barreled action with the sights removed and the trigger pin staked in place. Some, like this one, had "A2" added to the markings. Many seem to have used salvaged barrels (set back a turn). Using .30-06 sub caliber devices in tanks and other artillery pieces allowed training on regular rifle ranges with cheap ammunition instead of regular artillery ranges with huge safety area requirements.”
