WTB NOS M1903A3 Stamped Upper Barrel Band

WTB, NOS minty condition Upper Barrel Band for my M1903A3. I’d like to find one in the Parkerized finish for my 1944 make gun.

I would say that all 03A3 bands are blued after 1943 at least. I have many of them. Phosphate bands are rebuilds.

Ok, I did not know that. If you have any that you’d consider NOS without any issues, may I purchase one? If so please advise me with any pics of price to: planejack777@aol.com. Thank you, Jack

Oh, I’ve heard from a couple others….you are 100% correct! The Remington I received, was missing some parts. So, the gentleman I purchased it from had a box with which he considered appropriate replacements due to the “R” stampings. However, many have sat in this box for years, upon years, and have suffered the ravages of not having been properly stored.

I didn't mean I have bands for sale; I have rifles in my collection.
What finish is on your lower and stacking swivel bands?

Yes, I know that now about you not having any to sell. I just misunderstood your statement of saying “I have many of them”. Thank you for your good information. Jack
