With regard to the different companies that were contracted to build the Springfield M1903 series rifle, some were made by Remington, while others by Smith Corona (normally known for their typewriters.) I had always assumed that the Remington versions were made by the Remington[Arms].
Now, I just saw across an internet advert for a 1903 and the seller says it was built by "Remington Typewriter".
Can anybody clear this up for me? Was it Remington Typewriter? or Remington[Arms]? Or are the two the same company?
