Why does he think it to be the last one?

I think the guy he bought it from many years ago thought it was the last. Could have been a good sales pitch. LOL

This is why it was likely to have been the last SBT produced in Ilion, NY.


"Remington's production of sporting rifles and shotguns declined in 1941, and by the beginning of 1942 the Ilion facility was totally committed to the war effort. In April 1942, approval was given by the Ordnance Department for Remington to simplify production of the 1903 rifle, including the substitution of stamped instead of machined parts. The resulting weapon was called U.S. Rifle, Caliber .30, Model 1903 (Modified), and Remington produced about 188,000 between June and December 1942."

(Taken from a Google search.)

Unless someone has a higher numbered SBT then that one is the last one known to exist.
