In the correct holes on the receiver is the base of a Lyman 48 receiver sight. Right now the gun sports a Weaver 440 scope with orig leather scope caps. A nice period scope.

Item # W1373
The 1903 is chambered in the obsolete 22 Winchester auto cal. This is a very pretty gun with most blue remaining at 90%+. Light wear at a couple of the high points on the receiver. Rather strange in the fact that it has a threaded bbl with protective cap for the installation of most likely the early style Maxim silencer. No silencer on it of course. Also there is a scope mounted on the early style Weaver wrap around mount. In the mount is a Weaver model 344 scope. Looks very good on this gun. The wood is exceptional for an '03 as is the bore.
