Hello. My grandfather passed away recently, and left me his father's M1903 rifle. I am told he used it to train troops in Chile during WW2. My grandfather had it restored by a gunsmith a few years ago. It still has the original cleaning kit in the flip-up butt compartment, as well as its cloth strap.

I have a few questions: how can I identify the specific model I have? What type of ammunition does it fire? Is it safe to fire at the range? I am told the gunsmith said the boring and chamber are in fantastic shape. It has a metal plate on the bottom. Is it possible/advisable to modify this to accept magazines, making it semi-automatic rather than bolt-action? Would this make me a tacticool fag ruining a piece of history?

Thoughts and opinions appreciated. I would have included a picture of it but I don't have a camera, and my phone is broken.

was he asking about how to buy a new gun? Nope, he was asking how to convert it to semi auto. It's a stupid question but that's the real answer.

As stupid as his question was at least he hasn't demonstrated himself to be a retard who doesn't have any ability for reading comprehension, as you have.

Ah see I was also oblivious to this information. I didn't even know you could load the rounds individually lol. Hope I don't kill myself on the range with this thing. I'm familiar with pistols and semi-autos but only fired a bolt-action when I was a child, forgive my glaring ignorance.
