Upon further research the serial number on the rifle is in the 8000's which was made in 1895 but marking on receiver (which is the same place serial number is) has 1898 on it??? The final 8 on it looks a little marred....anyone know why this would have been done?

Following WW 2 I was at an age when I became interested in firearns. My brother in law a WW 2 Vet got the American Rifleman. There were pages of gun adds showing military rifles. He got two 1903s and a 1917. Money was short for a lot of people back then . Why carry a heavy rifle when hunting elk and deer in the high country ? Back then , take the barreled action out of the stock get out a saw, cut off unwonted wood. Take off the steel butt plate, cut off some more wood if the length pull would be to long and replace it with a rubber pad . At best, I could say that that rifle look bad. But during the late 40, then the 50,60,and 70s he kill pronghorn, mule deer.and elk with that ugley 30-06 rifle. Any time I see one of those old cut up, beat up old rifles . I have to smile , With the cost of the rifle, sling, and recoil, at most cost $ 20 but I ll bet that he killed more big game with his cut up military 06 than any of you will.
