City or County: Hanover
Up for sale is a rare Springfield 1903 Mark 1 made in 1919. Only 101775 rifles were modified. These Mark 1 rifles were rare prototypes made between 1918 -1920. They never saw combat. The rifles were were often called Pederson Rifles because they used a semi auto Pederson bolt in a 1903 platform. Unfortunately most of the semi auto Pederson bolts were destroyed around 1931 after the rifles were thrown into storage. I do not have the Pederson Device bolt. The rifle is in good condition with a clean bore and aged wood. The metal on the rifle is in very good condition with a smooth working bolt. The rifle was bought from a church friend who inherited the rifle from his father over 40 years ago. Rifle has been completely disassembled, cleaned, and properly reassembled. On gun broker some of these Mark 1 rifles are going for $4000. Text me at 804-432-5590.
