Title Infantry Rifle

Description Reproduction Infantry rifle for the time period between 1902-1937. M1903 Springfield .30 caliber. A 16 in bayonet blade could be attached. The M1903 Springfield, formally the United States Rifle, Caliber .30-06, Model 1903, is an American clip-loaded, 5-shot, bolt-action service rifle used primarily during the first half of the 20th century. The M1903 Springfield was still used as a standard issue infantry rifle during World War II, since the U.S. entered the war without sufficient M1 rifles to arm all troops. It also remained in service as a sniper rifle during World War II, the Korean War, and even in the early stages of the Vietnam War.
