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 ... :?:

In the movie (which I havent seen in a long time) I believe it is a 1903, but i keep having visions of this one scene where he nails about 5 or 6 guys and its with a slanted bolt rifle, similar to a Lee Navy...but that could be my head playing tricks. google.com will surley provide the answers! i shall research....
