In the year 1903, the U.S. Army designed and adopted a bolt-action rifle in response to the popular Mausers experienced during the Spanish-American War and other battles in the late 1800's. The Springfield 1903 would accompany American soldiers in the trenches of WWI and the fields of WWII, and remains a fine rifle to shoot and a collectors item to this day. Theodore Rooselvelt, having personally experienced the barrage of mauser bullets with his famed Rough Riders in Cuba, pressed for the creation of this historic rifle. It was with the Springfield 1903 that the President hunted game in his infamous African Safari.
We obtained an unrestorable and unusable original 1903 rifle stock. The walnut is an incredible chocolate color, but quantity is limited, making this ring a truly limited product.
Classic America! We put so much thought and quality into the products created in the early 20th century. A soldier's uniform was made of wool, all made in the U.S., for the fabric's superior ability to keep a soldier warm, even when wet. The wool infantryman's field shirt used in this ring was worn by a soldier in WWI. The olive drab green not only creates a wonderful contrast to the ring, but has a unique texture you won't find in any other ring.
A strip of stainless steel, appropriate considering the use of steel in WWI, ties the elements together and adds a touch of class.
This is a true American Joe's ring, perfect for the history buff and sentimentalist.
I am proud to craft each ring by hand in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is my honor to play a small role in the new "Made in USA" movement that is taking place across the nation and to do so by sharing part in our American heritage.
