it's an early pinned stock (so don't fire any rifle grenades).

nobody knows much about the trigger guard stamps but only smith corona used a diamond.

Remington stocks also have straight cuts around band spring.

yep. That's what I thought when I didn't see the diamond. O3a3's are my favorite rifles. I've got a pretty decent collection of smith corona's.

I like the Smith-Coronas too. I think they're better made than the Remington 03A3 in general. They're just as serviceable but show better workmanship. Maybe S-C had something to prove.

Mine all have 6-groove barrels rather than more common 4-groove.
