The Gibbs M1903-A4 is built using original Remington-made World War II M1903-A3 actions and turned-down bolts, which Gibbs obtained large quantities of when it purchased the rifle division of Parker-Hale in the 1990's. Gibbs then utilizes new-made 4-groove barrels made identical to the originals. Each receiver is carefully drilled and tapped using replicas of the original "Redfield" rings and mounts and the 2nd Generation Gibbs 1903A4 M73G2 scope made by Hi-Lux/Leatherwood, an exact copy of the M73B1 scope, used on the 1st model M1903-A4's. Each barreled action has the original military parkerized finish with parkerized stock furniture, again, identical to the originals. The stocks are new-made "C" configuration with a linseed oil finish.
