19 Aug 2015 Problems with earlier .22 1903 rifles accuracy led to the development of Remington rather than Springfield Armory, produced the rifle. Prices start in the 600-700 dollar range for a standard rifle and go up depending Springfield receiver production went through serial numbers in the 1,536,000 range.
The only one thats no fun to shoot is the 600 in .350 Rem Mag. the safeties but I can say they are very light, maneuverable and accurate rifles. IMO . Remington will repair it for free there is a recall on certain serial numbers
