1903A4 (This was a sniper rifle issued in 1943 that saw service up until the Vietnam War. Real examples are extremely costly but the Gibbs Rifle Company produced a replica version a couple years ago for about $1,000. If you’ve watched Saving Private Ryan, this rifle is carried by Jackson, the sniper, albeit with different scopes. This example is a late war sniper due to the M84 scope mounted which was also used on the Garand sniper rifles.)
