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.

What could have possibly made you think to use an internet Search Engine? How dare you trust an internet Search Engine? What have we come to......???????
