1/6 M1903 Springfield rifle

Here is my another new casting item of antique weapon, Springfield M-1903 and bayonet. Again, this set didn’t come with sling.
M-1903 was officially adopted as a United States military service rifle on June 19 1903, and saw service in WWI. It was officially replaced as the standard infantry rifle by the faster-firing, semi automatic M1 Garand, starting in 1936. However, the M1903 Springfield remained in service as a sniper rifle and as a standard issue infantry rifle duringWWII, because the U.S. entered the war without sufficient M1 rifles to arm all troops.

The unpainted price are-

這把是新量產的M-1903春田步槍, 5年級應該都在高中時期的軍訓課中使用過這把槍打靶. 蠻喜歡這把單拉單放的古董級30步槍; 這款步槍於1903年研發成, 使用於一次大戰、二次大戰初期, 接著被M1加蘭德取代.





The image of HBO featuring video series “The Pacific” USMC soldier were equipped with M-1903 rifle at the battle of Guadalcanal at August 1942.
在HBO的血戰太平洋影集裡的海軍陸戰隊的單兵配備了M-1903 春田步槍, 當時為1942年的瓜達康納爾島戰役, 也是盟軍開始跳島反攻作戰計畫的開始.
