Thanks for sharing these photos. I took the liberty of sending this picture to a friend of mine who is a World War II Encyclopedia. He believes it to be a 1903A3. He says the sling position in the rear gives it away. M1 Swivel is only 2 3/4" from the butt.This is my father in Italy(we believe) near Anzio in 1944.:clap: For years i've been trying to figure out what kind of rifle he has shouldered. The pic makes it hard to see. Anyone with a good photo enhancer? I'd love to know what hes carrying. I think it is an M1.
