    hold up now, check out what you have before you go off selling it for $75. Sounds like it could be worth a lot more.

    I started looking at a few sites that talked about theese guns. I might change my mind about seeling this. I figured the guy that told me it was from world wasr 2 might be feeding me a line of crap. I did find that they were used during world war 1 and not 2. I would like to find out what a nice one goes for.

    They were used in both WWI and WWII, it was used more as a sniper rifle in WWII if memory serves. Also believe it is refered to the 03A3. These guns can fetch a lot of money. Even if rough condition your looking at $100-200.

    Look for proof marks, see if it has a little flying bomb on the barrel, you will know it if you see it. If it has that it is definately military issue. If you can get pics that would be cool.

    it has a bomb on the barrel. also has a V5 on the side of the barrel. I found a site to type in the serial number and the rifle was manufactured in 1918 has some weird markings on the bolt action lever also. by the way thanks for the heads up TrcksR4ME /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i thought we used scoped Springfield 30-06's for sniper rifles in WW2... did remington get in on manufacturing sorta like ford (or willys for that matter) with the jeep?

    at any rate, pretty cool rifle, almost definitely worth more than $75 unless the bbl is nasty/pitted etc.

    There were many different brands, but the rifle was the same. Same as with the Jeeps.

    One thing that also is good about this rifle is it has a great action. People will pay just for that, so even if the barrel is crap you can still get money for it.

    It seems like there was several companies manufacturing
    .30-06's for the Army at that time.
    I have a 1917 Eddyton that has armory stamps all over it.
    I havn't done any research on it yet. I use it as my deer and Elk rifle.
    After nearly 90 years of use the action is still smooth and at 50 yds will keep drilling the same hole in a quarter.

    the gun is actualy in good shape. the barrel dose need to be reblued but there are no pits in it. it shoots great. I used it for target practice for about 3 years.

    and BTW, if the gun is in good condition overall and you like it, getting it reblued should only run you $100-$150, and you should be able to find a new stock if you want. Basically you can make the gun like new again for way less money than you would spend on a new rifle (which probably wouldn't shoot as well). /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    any idea where I might find a new original stock for it? I still am considering selling this gun ( I have another 30 ot 06) but if I could find the original stock for it it might be worth reduing and keeping.

    Can try Numrich Gun Parts Corporation, if they don't have parts for it, then its likely no one does. Their catalog is like 400 pages thick. http://www.gunpartscorp.com/

    We used them all the time at the gun shop I worked in, good company.
