What kind of Remington? Did it have the carbine-type sight or the older "ladder"-type?

Actually, if all you want is a shooter, drilled and tapped for a scope isn't going to hurt anything except collectability.

Remingtons, as a rule, were either stored after assembly, used for training or used in rear areas. There are a few pictures of 1903A3s being used in combat. The Marines used mostly low-numbered Springfields and Rock Islands.

ALL Remingtons are "high-numbered" and are safe to shoot, headspace and other normal things being good. SAs below 800,000 and Rock Islands below 285507 are the only ones to watch out for.

Hi, Papa G,

I also have a 1903 (Modified), s/n 32830XX, 11-42, which came with a scant stock and "blond" handguard. I found a stock in a field while working one day and a few years later after cleaning all the paint and tape off of it, turned out to be a perfectly matched FJA straight stock! Found a matching handguard and now, it's my nicest rifle.

Like to hear about your rifle and Riccardo's, too.

I'll try posting a picture of mine and see what happens.
