Can anyone help me identify this stock. It measures 29" in length. Any info is much appreciated.
It's almost definitely a sporterized 1903 stock judging by the bolt relief on the left side, barrel band, butt plate, and ameteurish checkering.
Guessing the D.A.W is someone's initials.
What he said.
That's not a gov't cartouche, as far as I can find.
Welcome kanman, do you own any hi points?
Thanks for all your help.
Last time I fired a 1903 Springfield the bolt was on the right. I am trying to remember where the safety was.......
Back of the bolt if I remember.
Appears to be a Scant C stock for the Model 1903. The left side cutout is for the cut off, not the bolt handle.
What a beautiful rifle!
Cut off = safety? Rectangular with rounded edges? I am digging back to 1975.
Cutoff being the magazine cutoff?.... Forcing single shot?
The cutout on the left is for the magazine cutoff. The safety is similar to a K98 on the back of the bolt.
Never knew there was such a thing. I was in the color guard and we borrowed the '03's from the American Legion. We fired blanks at the raising of the colors at the HS football games one at a time.
Here is a pic of a fully functional 03. You will notice the mag cutoff on the bottom pic.
If you say so. Too small to see.
Here you go
The idea was, you load the mag, flip the cutoff up, and thus cut off the mag, so cycling the bolt didn't feed from the mag, soldiers were expected to feed individual cartridges, just like in a breech loader.
If things got hot, you flipped it down, or off, and could the access the mag.
That idea didn't last long.
Doubt, and ye shall be smote upon by the great and almighty Ajole........ He who's milsurp arsenal shall lay waste to all who question!
Wasn't sure what that relief was for, never put hands on one of these, thought maybe the bolt had to flop all the way over there to be removed or something lol.
Dangit, now I want one.
