The American Made Springfield M1903 bolt action rifle (which is terrible) was officially adopted as the standard US bolt action rifle in 1905 until being replaced by the M1 Garand. Although remaining in service primarily as the sniper rifle of choice among american forces. Used primarily for the first half of the 20th century, seen in such conflicts as the Mexican Revoltuion to the Vietnam war. Seen with controversy before the start of the 20th century due to similaritys to the Krag Jorgensen and German Mauser G98 rifles. Featureing either a 5 or 25 round stripper clip, the 25 rounds being for ze Air Service Variant of the Springfield, or loaded by hand as seen on the scoped, sniper version, being the only version of any use in World at War
Moving to the Springfield as featured, it is availble on the wall in Verrukt, and is also in the boxes rotatation on Verrukt and Nacht. Coming with an uncomfortable iron sight, it comes with 5 rounds per magazine and 50 more to spare, the Springfield also costs 200 points. 200 too much as its 1 hit headshot kill ability is lost after round 2. Its damage is equel to that of the Gewher or M1A1, in that round 3 foes can take 3 shots without being killed. Truely one of the most pitiful weapon choices for the difficult to contain Asylum grounds, the only saving grace is that it was replaced in Black Ops version of Verrukt with the German Kar98k.
The .30.06 springfield cartridge was introduced and standardised by the US armed forces in 1906, loaded either one at a time, or with a stripper clip, or using the "En Bloc" clip for the M1 Garand.
