The M1903 Springfield, formally the United States Rifle, Caliber .30-06, Model 1903, is an American clip-loaded, 5-round magazine fed, bolt-action service rifle used primarily during the first half of the 20th century.
It was officially adopted as a United States military bolt-action rifle on June 19, 1903, and saw service in World War I. It was officially replaced as the standard infantry rifle by the faster-firing semi-automatic 8-round M1 Garand starting in 1937. However, the M1903 Springfield remained in service as a standard issue infantry rifle during World War II, since the U.S. entered the war without sufficient M1 rifles to arm all troops. It also remained in service as a sniper rifle during World War II, the Korean War, and even in the early stages of the Vietnam War. It remains popular as a civilian firearm, historical collector's piece, and as a military drill rifle.
The S&T 1903A3 bolt action rifle is an outstanding homage to its real steel cousin. Constructed of metal and mounted to exquisitely crafted wood stock the S&T 1903A3 looks as good as it shoots. With a smooth bolt pull the S&T 1903A3 offers solid performance at a fraction of the price you would pay for other 1903 replicas on the market. When compared to other available 1903s, the spring powered system used in the S&T offers more consistent, reliable and hassle free performance, limiting issues on the battle field.

"I am a sucker for all things WW2. I bought this inspite of some spotty reviews assuming if it shot bad it would make a great prop rifle. it's priced less than an shooting Denix replica. I lucked out as mine shoots and feeds flawlessly with probably 500 plus rounds through it. I got two spare mags and all work fine. The power is less than I'd like for a Springer boltie (about 340 fps w .20 gram). Hop up is okay but not great.
As a skirmisher in a WW2 type event it could pass but definitely not adequate for a modern game. The trap door design is clever from a replica perspective but awkward for skirmishing. The looks are spectacular good. With the orange tip removed and a little aged patina it would be hard not to think it's real. A bayonet fits nicely into place but it's definitely not robust enough for the bayonet course. Come to think of it NEITHER AM I. I like this gun a lot! how about a comparable Kar 98 and Enfield at this same price point!
"I got this gun while on sale for 212 dollars, and I gotta say it was well worth the price! It's well built, got some weight to it, looks very nice and shoots hard. The magazine for it is just a plastic rectangle, and a bit fragile feeling, so don't act rough with it. When I first tried using it, the bolt was VERY stiff and hard to pull back, but after repeated firings and cycles of the bolt, it got better.
Also, this rifle is pretty dang long, so for smaller people, it's gonna be a bit big, but not overwhelming.
I 100% recommend getting this gun if you're interested, for 250 dollars, it's worth it. Even better if it's on sale.
"I really like this gun. I was cautious when I bought it, having seen reviews both here and on Youtube, but I bought it anyway, and I really, really like it. Now, I do want to address a few things. Firstly, the build quality isn't the greatest. The wood isn't perfectly put together, and as you can see on the "WhatAreYouBuyen" review on Youtube, you will have to glue it in one spot in particular. However, it was more than half a year before I actually noticed that problem. I secondly want to address all the issues I had with it. I did have to take the magazine apart once to get it to work again, but when I did, it worked fine. I also encountered a problem where the bolt wouldn't go all the way forward, and I want to mention that I found a (rather old fashioned) solution. Literally drop it straight down right on the tip of the barrel a couple of times (not too hard) and it will shake the bb loose and let you fire it. That aside, the reason I gave it a good review is that the bolt is nice and smooth, and, most importantly, it shoots incredibly straight over an incredibly impressive range. The trigger is quite sensitive and it altogether is a very nice gun. I recommend it for target shooting, it looks very nice and realistic for you collectors like me, and maybe, just maybe, if you have a nice place to post and you're feeling really lucky, you could even use it in a real airsoft fight.
