This is a highly detailed wooden replica of the 1903 Springfield that was use by parade and drill teams.With the look, the feel and even the cocking sound of the revered 1903 Springfield rifle, this highly detailed replica will be a great collection starter for your granddaughter or grandson. Known for balance, the 1903 Springfield is the overwhelming favorite. Length is 43.3". They make these out of plastic these days. I like this wooden one much better.
