Not real GI.

Postwar 1960's made cast recvr with GI parts for the most rest. Composite handguard is for a plastic " drill rifle"  stock set .

Not worth anything collector wise.

check headspace before you try firing it. Seen several that were way out of spec.

My pal bought one thinking it was a genuine GI A3!

Kind of got rooked on that as he could have bought a Remington or Smith Corona for the same bucks.

They also lack a clip-loading slot in the funky cast receiver.

Some guys who have them say they are good shooters.  You can replace that plastic crap with a wood repro.  

If you just want a shooter and did not pay the same as a GI '03, then no harm done.  Check headspace and go try it out.

Shoot the heck out it until you find a real one. I had a Nat'l Ord carbine that shot like a champ. I sold it for twice what I paid for it when I finally got a USGI.

+1

My uncle recently picked one up for $125 at a yard sale thinking he had a GI rifle at first. It headspaced fine and is a good shooter.

As has been pointed out it's a 60's part gun. But if it's safe to shoot and functions well (I have a Santa Fe receivered 03a3 [same thing - different company] that won't feed reliably from the left side of a full magazine. Download 1 and it works great) you have a great basis for an 03A4 conversion. That's what I have in plan for mine.

My NO 1903A3 is an excellent shooter. In fact, it outshoots my other 2 Remington 1903A3s. My only complaint - can't use stripper clip with it.
