This is a very fine condition and documented Springfield Model 1903A1 National Match Rifle.The Model 1903A1 was approved by the Ordnance Department in early 1928, but the only difference between it and the Model 1903 was the addition of the "C" or pistol grip stock.

This is a very rare and fine condition, all matching WWI German Model 1914 Luger manufactured by the Erfurt Arsenal in 1914, the first year of WWI.
