GENERAL ORDERS,

WAR DEPARTMENT,
NO. 3.

WASHINGTON, January 10, 1905. 1. The following spare parts and appendages for the United States magazine rifle, model of 1903 (Table I), will be issued to the ordnance officers of posts and regiments for the purpose of making repairs to arms in the hands of troops in the field and garrison. It is considered that the number opposite each part will be sufficient to cover the ordinary repairs to 100 arms for at least one year; but if for any reason a greater number is required, special requisition can be made for the additional parts needed, in which case the necessity must be fully explained. The allowance prescribed will be furnished with the first issue of arms, and thereafter post and regimental ordnance officers will submit annually on July 1 requisitions for such number of spare parts as will bring the number on hand up to the prescribed allowance. No parts other than those named in the table will be issued.
