    Picked this up at an auction a few years ago.

    Any details like serial number, barrel markings and stock markings ?

      I like my 1903 If I remember I ran it thru Hawaiian territorial guard they were selling off a room full of them, I think I paid $45.00 for it, it has been restocked and a new bolt, still shoots great, 150 gr. Only has a Hatcher hole drilled in the receiver. Some of the real early model 1903 had an issue with heat treating. And would blow up. The Marines ignored the warning and drilled this mod in the receiver. I’ve read a few articles and seen some disturbing photos, on blown up receivers, the last incident that got attention, was in Salt Lake City, turned out the barrel had a small blockage, other incidents were associated with improper rounds, and defective bolts.
