The M1903 Springfield is an American rifle.
The M1903 Springfield was developed to replace the Krag-Jørgensen rifle as the standard American service rifle, which was deemed inferior to the Spanish Mauser M1893 rifle as experienced in the Spanish-American War in 1898. Although the semi-automatic M1 Garand had replaced the Springfield as the service rifle in World War II, the Springfield was still used in numbers, as the Garand was not yet available in sufficient numbers at the start of the war. It also serviced as the sniper rifle until the early stages of the Vietnam War.
In Battlegroup42 the M1903 Springfield is the primary weapon for the early American rifleman class, as well as Free French rifleman class in European theatre. It is also available to the American sniper class for throughout the war. The rifleman class also has access to bayonet and rifle grenade, whereas the sniper class has scope attached to the rifle for sharpshooting.
