Discussion

Hey, this is a good article but there are some suggestions I have. The M1903A1 featured a C-type pistol-grip stock and some other minor improvements and was introduced in 1929. It did see service, and was not only manufactured in limited numbers as some sources note. There was a sniper version of the M1903A1 used solely by the Marine Corps, espiecially at the beginning of the war, that was a select-grade receiver and barrel and featured a high-quality optic, and was designated as the M1941. This model and information can be confirmed in an article contained both within the Guns and Ammo Surplus Arms special, in the second volume, and also in a duplicate of the same article featured in American Rifleman.

BTW, good info! Didn't want you to think we didn't welcome cool info. I'm just guarded against unknown variants or unused variants in film/tv/etc. Good work! MoviePropMaster2008 05:06, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, but SAWGunner89 , please sign your posts :) . But .... Also please remember that IMFDB is not a Gun Encyclopedia. The new info may be useful, but we must be aware that it is NOT IMFDB's job to list every variant of a said weapon for be an exhaustive resource for the history of the gun. Our primary concern is chronicling the APPEARANCES of any said weapon in visual entertainment media (film, tv, etc.) If there is a variant that is rare and does NOT appear in anything, it doesn't belong here. Just a reminder that's all. MoviePropMaster2008 01:59, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
