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.

"This is my second 03 Springfield an the last 3 months. My first one that was a privlidge to own was the G&G nickel plated gas operated 03A3 which I had numerous problems with, truly a disappointment for a $500.00 rifle, But Evike made good for it. The second time (being a glutton for punishment), I bought the S&T 03A3 spring operated, $200.00 rifle and darn if I didn't have problems with it. I love these bolt action war horses and was very disappointed to report feeding problems with it. When I got it to shoot, It really laid them out there shooting flat and straight at targets over 100 yds away. But it seems like I had many feeding problems concerning that darn magazine. Had many maddening jams, because the bolt does not come out to clear out all the ground up debris from the BB's This made my problems 100 times worse than a feeding problem. I'm still at a point of insecurity and hate to go any further trying to load up the magazine just to have all the bb's be ground out into an bolt cocking nightmare. I went through this problem several times to no avail, hate to send it back to Evike But I like the gun so much I willing to put up with any inconvenience just so I can say that is my favotite airsoft firearm. Having purchased many guns over the years from Evike, I hate to be a griper and a complainer. Buyer beware!
"I bought this gun warily as some of the reviews were negative about it, but when it arrived and upon operation of the rifle, it's a nice gun! It's an iconic piece of history, and works great. I have had no feeding issues, no cocking issues, nothing of any sort. It shoots great, I was hitting a chest-sized target from 100 feet away with it. There was only one issue that I found with it, the rear sling mount is tiny! I bought a replica M1 Garand sling for it, but the J-Hook would not fit through the rear sling mount, forcing me to loop the tail of the sling through it. The stacking swivel, and the front sling mount are normal size, but for whatever reason, the rear sling mount looks like they put a little toy gun sling mount. Other than the one issue, it's a great gun! If you are looking for a good backyard gun, a movie prop, or if used in good hands an actual field gun, this gun is perfect.
"When i first got the gun i was impresed with how good it looked and that it was only a couple of pounds
When i fired the gun the mag feeding the BBs was a hit and miss but after repeatedly puting BBs and silicone oil in and dumping it out it works better but still needs to be broken in some. the range i got was bad (Until i realised i had the hop up off the entire time) after i turned it on i got some pretty good range but no more than an avrage aeg
also i aquired a genuin WWI springfeild bayonet but it dosent fit on the rifle because the orange barrle tip and the mount are just big enough that it wont fit but after the warnty expires i'll file it down
Light only a couple of pounds
eazy to find your target with the peaphole sights
mag capasity is 25 rounds
very nice wood stain
the mag can sometimes be auquard to get in and out and may have problems feeding but with some silicone oil and time they will break in and feed properly
the range is shorter than i expected so i would look in to upgrading the rifle some
if you want a sniper rifle
