    Question M1903 Springfield, 30-06 Springfield (1947)

    I have read that the United States Rifle, Caliber .30-06, Model 1903 (M1903 Springfield) was produced from 1907 to 1949.

    I am going to assume if I find one of these dated in 1947, it will be the M1903A3 variant.

    A few 1903A3 were made in 1941, most were made in 1942 and just a few made in 1943. Garand production increased to where the 1903A3 wasn't necessary.
