WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
"When asked to recommend just one book on the '03...I have answered unequivocally, A Collector's Guide to the '03 Springfield. With the release of An Illustrated Guide to the '03 Springfield Service Rifle, I'll have to amend my response. If you need to know when your rifle was made, whether that is indeed the issue scope on your -03A4, who is represented by the "J.F.C." inspector's cartouche, or what should be on a ricasso of a typical World War II bayonet, it's just about all in here, and it's easy to find. After pouring through the manuscript, I believe it is Bruce's best yet. It is a fitting tribute to America's greatest military bolt action rifle and the men who used it."
