    Bought this M1 Garand from my grandpa, he acquired this in the mid 90's through the CMP
    On your Enfield, that's not a grenade sight, it's a volley sight. It's a somewhat unique find.

    My circa 1942/1943 WWII Pacific theater, all Remington 1903A3. The receiver dates to @ late 1942. The barrel is a NOS 2-grove dated 12-43.
    The scant stock is a refinished surplus piece accurate for the time and use, as is the WWI era helmet. The M1 bayonet & sheath are original from 1942.
    The sling is a modern-made exact reproduction to an original unit even down to the original "MILSCO 1942" stamping.
    The ammo belt is also a WWII US reproduction, as is the reprinted TM 9-1270 ordnance manual (though reprinted from a 1944 manual.)
    Every other piece of this rifle is built from new in wrap, new old stock Remington parts dated from @1942/43 (WWII).



    This setup would have been used from @ Dec. '41 through about mid-1943 across the Pacific theater with both the USMC as well as a number of US Navy shore-based units.
    Beyond 1943, the M1903A3 was almost universally replaced by the M1 Garand, as was the WWI helmet by the US M1 helmet.

    I lucked into a Mauser yesterday/last week.

    Not a bad deal for buying my father-in-law a $170 shotgun.



    You know what I like best about most people?

    Their dogs.

    1943 03A3 Smith Corona

    This was my first hunting rifle, sporterized by my grandad. Last year I restored it to mil spec with SC parts and a C stock. I left the civilian sights on, it shoots very well with them.

    Attachment 57400

    This is the work done by grandad, he cut down the original stock and did the checkering.
