    Default Remington 30-06

    A few years back I picked up a Remington 03-a3 from an estate sale and just dug it out of storage...I got Curious about is history and started researching the model numbers on the internet. One of the oddities I noticed which I haven't been able to answer is stamped over the US Remington model numbers are two sets of SS's? I tracked the model number back to 1942 but that's all the information I could find, does anyone know what the SS's stamped over the model number might be/mean?
    Any help is appreciated...thanks in advance!

    I assume it is military surplus that may have some defects like a worn or cracked stock and wear with the steel but the firearm is still serviceable. I am far from an expert on this, all I did was "Google" the abbreviation and the two words. I assume that is what SS stands for by reading other people's comments on line.
