SGT YORKS WEAPON .....

Cant remember offhand where or when I was involved in this particualar discussion but the 'ole timers such as the 03 and 03A3 came up under discussion and someone (can't remember who offhand) stated that in the "movie" Sgt York which starred Gary Cooper it showed him using an 03 when in fact the "real" Sgt York used an entirely different weapon such as an Enfield perhaps or whatever it was ....

Can anyone out there verify this and make the truth be known here ... :?:

There's a site out there,that has SGT.Yorks Diary posted.I read it but didn't save it.He was issued a P-17 Enfeild,but trained with the 03.He wrote that he didn't like the peep sight on the enfeild and prefered the sights the 03 had.If I can find the site again,I'll have the wife show me how to post the link. :oops:
