What was the negative effect of springfield rifle in ww1?
There really weren't any. The Model 1903 Springfield was an
excellent rifle. Parts of the bolt mechanism shared technology with
the German standard rifle, the Model 1898 Mauser, and the US rifle
was built under license from the Mauser works. The main problem
with the rifle might be the rear sight, which had adjustments for
both elevation and windage, and might be a little bit complicated
for novice shooters. The other main problem was that there were
nowhere near enough of them to go around. The rifle was
manufactured only at government arsenals, and at top speed only
about 5,000 per month could be made. Before the end of the war the
US actually had over one million combat troops in France, and
another million on the way, so not everybody was going to get a
Springfield. Commercial firearms manufacturers had entered into
contracts with the British government in 1914 to produce
Lee-Enfield rifles for the British Army, according to the British
standard design in .303 caliber. These companies still had the
machinery and only slight modifications were necessary for those
companies to produce Enfield rifles in .30 caliber - the standard
US .30-06. Many more US troops were armed with one of the "American
Enfields" than had a Springfield. Sergeant York performed his
heroic Medal of Honor feats with an American Enfield.
I think it was the M1 Garand. It was also the Springfield 1903, they used those when they couldn't make enough Garands.
It was in total use during WW1. It was also in use during the early part of WW2 along with the 1903's.
Mr.Springfield did, an American General. Well it depends on what kind of Springfield as the 30-06 Springfield which was used in World War 2 as a sniper in the U.S Army. Springfield Armory invented that kind of Sniper Rifle during World War 2. Another Springfield would be the Springfield m1903 which is used in the ROTC programs acroos America today. Springfield is the name of the Arsenal in SPRINGFIELD MASS. There were many variations designed… Read More
the same as those used in WW1 and WW2 on the springfield 1903 rifle and M1 garand. earlier bayonets had 16" blade, later models 10" blade
The Springfield 1903 was the standard weapon of the US servicemen in WW1. However, since it was only produced at Springfield Arsenal ( Rock Island didn't come on line until 1917) only the US Marine Brigade used them. All other US troops were armed with the "U.S. Rifle, Caliber .30, Model of 1917", manufactured by Winchester, Remington, and Eddystone.
Depended on the rifle. $5-$500
The rifle was not as deadly as the machine gun or artillery, but it WAS deadly. By WW 1, rifles included the German 8mm Mauser, the British .303 caliber SMLE, and the American 30-06 caliber 1903 Springfield. All were high powered repeating rifles, accurate to several hundred meters.
the great depression
During WW1 there were mainly bolt-action rifles. Infantrymen generally used them. Germany used mainly the Mauser Model 98 rifle Britain used the Lee Enfield rifle The Russian Empire used the Mosin-Nagant rifle The United States used the Enfield 1917 and Springfield 1903 rifles France used the 1886 Lebel rifle During WW1, they also started using Machine guns extensively.

Bayonet serial no 337054 US and the flaming bomb SA and 1908 on the other No damage except a little pitting on blade and wood handle good with slight splintering on side No sheath Any idea of value?

This gun is a Rifle
That will depend on the rifle in question,what caliber,and the overall condition of the rifle including the amount of original finish remaining on the wood and metal.
The Ross Rifle was used by Canadians in world war one. WW1 was mainly trench warfare and were not good conditions for the Ross rifle it would jam fairly easily and Canadian soldiers were forced to pick up dead Germans guns the Lee-Enfield
The first anti-tank came out when the first tank was fielded, in WW1. It was a bolt action rifle.
If "1973" is the date the rifle was produced it couldn't have been used in the civil war because the civil war was in the 1860's. I think you mean "1873" the Trapdoor was used in the Indian wars and the Spanish American War. During WW1 it was used for training and Stateside guard duty.
This serial number is from 1929. The rifles value depends on many things..bore wear, muzzle wear, throat erosion, stock condition, does it have any special paperwork as to previous ownership, are all the numbers matching, is it a National Match rifle and the list goes on from there. Market value on a post WW1 1903 Springfield will start at about $200.00 and go up from there. Take it to a few local gun shops and… Read More

Soldiers who served the WW1 in the trenches suffered from Shell Shock. It effected them negative with common things like tiredness, headaches, difficulties to focus, constant diarrhea and being emotional.
The Mouser was a a great rifle, in its time one of the best. This revolutionary rifle offered a marksman great accuracy, fast reload, great distance, and altogether comfterable and easy to operate.
John Garand was working at the Springfield Armory when he designed the automatic rifle that bears his name. Springfield Armory bid on an Army contract and produced them for the US Army. For Canada to purchase the rifle, it would have to have contracted with a foreign company which may not have been allowed by their policy. Some Canadians probably did use the Garand. The 1st Special Service Force (aka the Devil's Brigade) was an… Read More
price on such a weapon would depend on originality of parts to that era, and overall condition of rifle and scope. i would guess at $1500 +/-
Sam Hughes supported the Ross Rifle, which turned out to be faulty when used in WW1. Hughes was at the time Minister of Militia.
In addition to the rifles listed below, the US used 2 different rifles- the 1903 Springfield, and the US rifle 1917. Both were in caliber 30-06, but had different designs. The Russians were using the 1891 Mosin-Nagant.
It put Germany into depression, blamed them for WW1, and made them pay for the WW1 expenses.
This refers to the Enfield rifle, which was made in several versions. The first ones were made for WW1. I think the Mark 3 was the first one made for WW2.
