I went to a local auction yesterday and picked this bad boy up. It is a 1903 Springfield made in 1918. Barrel is MINT and gauges excellent. Still in cosmo. Not bad for $525.

Eric you are the luckiest (smartest) person I have ever seen.
β€œThe liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.”

Nice pick up, I wish I could PICK up something like that.
Also nice rear sight.

Btw, the buttstock sometimes has hidden stuff in it, did you find anything there?
