The Springfield 1903 rifle (designation United States Rifle, Caliber.30, Model 1903; also known as the M1903 Rifle or simply the M1903) is a bolt action rifle of the United States of the 20th century.
After the end of World War I, several thousand unserviceable Springfieldrifles were collected from the field and re-assembled from their interchangeable parts, some at ordnance depots in France, and others stateside.
The rifle was used by the U.S. military only in the opening years of the war, however, before being phased out in favor of the M1 Garand.
