M1903A1-M1903A3 Overhaul Procedures - Exhibit A

Overhaul, Repair, and Repackaging Procedure For Rifle, U.S. Caliber .30, M1903, M1903A1, and M1903A3 Exhibit A Dated 22 January 1945 - This World War II written procedure assures that Caliber .30, M1903 rifles submitted for overhaul and repair are placed in a condition approximating a "new rifle quality" with respect to functioning.  The exhibit requires a good appearance rifle, consistent finish, careful inspection of all parts, and points out when parts can be interchanged or should be modified and / or discarded.  There is excellent documentation in this 11 page written procedure, including what rifles are acceptable (giving serial numbers) for both Rock Island and Springfield Arsenals.  HERE is a sample of PAGE 3, showing the written procedure for the rifle bolt.  This is a stapled 11 page pamphlet.

M1903 Lessons, Questions and Answers

M1903 Cal. .30 Rifle Lessons, Questions and Answers, Dated 1 January 1942, Fort Sill, Oklahoma Basic Individual Training On The M1903 Springfield Rifle - 20 page stapled manual covering seven major lesson plans.  The lesson plans are: Description & Characteristics; Care and Cleaning; Functioning and Safety Precautions; Sighting and Aiming; Positions, Trigger Squeeze, Breathing, Calling the Shot, Rapid Fire; Effect of Wind, Sight Changes, Use of Scorecard; and Range and Pit Practice.  There are no pictures.  This pamphlet has a couple hundred questions and answers that people who were being trained to use this rifle needed to know.  To me, this pamphlet appears to be still valid in teaching firearms safety using the M1903 Series today.
