DA 103 is a Ross M-1910 rifle 303 caliber with a sound bore. The bore shows solid sound rifling with light corrosion rating very good. This rifle shows a Canadian WW1 CEF mark to the 12 th battalion on the right side of the butt and #5886. The left shows 1146. On the top below the bolt is #M322. This rifle obviously saw service in WW1. The receiver shows #DA103. This is one of 200 hundred rifles that were part of the arms locker aboard the J.M.S. Canada. This ship was sold to Chile with arms at the end of WW1. This ship, renamed the Almirante Latorre, was the flag ship of the Chilean navy up to 1958. In 1971,International Firearms of Montreal purchased and sold these Ross rifles all inscribed with the DA numbers. An interesting Canadian WW1 Ross with later naval service. This rifle appears to be mechanically sound. But as with any 1910 Ross rifle we can not advise as to the shootability. We can only recommend that any Ross 1910 be examined by a licensed gunsmith prior to shooting the same.
