At a WWII museum in Branson, MO I got to view 1903 rifles made by many manufacturers during WWII and earlier. It was both educational and interesting to view all of those 1903's with slight variations setting side by side in a display case. I own a 1903A3 also.
Looks too pretty to shoot. I don't have any in original configuration. I bought two many years ago that were sportered and drilled with iron Williams sights. Maybe some day I may find one not too high for my wallet.
I also have a '43 Remington 03A3 in excellent original condition, with a '43 dated M1907 sling on it. Excellent rifle.
I recently bought a new, surplus, '87 vintage USGI M1907 sling for my Garand. Raw and unfinished, but MRT treated, it was pretty stiff and naked looking. I soaked it real good with leather oil, now it's soft and brown like it's supposed to be.
