Ok guys. My 03 obsession started a few weeks ago after I picked up a 1917. I got it to hang on my doughboy mannequin, but then decided that it looks better on the wall. I decided I would pick up a cheap 03 for the mannequin, and really didn't care about the configuration or bore since it was just going to be slung over his shoulder. Then the disease took over. I started to read about 03's and soon I was becoming a little more particular about what I got. I wanted a stock that at least resembled a wartime stock. Then, I decided that I wanted the best I could afford. I went to a local show today, and after endless tables of ar15's, knife sharpening demonstrations, and tazors, the very last table had an 03 on it. I wasn't expecting much, but at first glance it looked completely legit! Could it be?! I didn't pay much at all, and walked out with it. Please tell me what you think. I've ordered a few reference books on the 03, but they haven't arrived yet. I got the best pictures I could with my cell phone, so if you need any others just let me know. What are the "R" stamps on the parts of the bolt? Is that Remington? And also, what is the "B" cartouche next to the eagle head cartouche on the stock? I appreciate your opinions guys.
