The M1903 from DoD:S is very similar to the Springfield from previous version of game, but reloading this rifle takes a few seconds, as all five rounds must be loaded individually. However, five rounds will always be loaded, no matter how many rounds are left in the magazine. Compared to its German counterpart the scoped Kar98K, the Springfield has a slightly slower rate of fire and reload speed, however has a more traditional crosshair for its scope while the Kar98K has a T shaped scope.

In-game, the Springfield deals 120 damage to the toso, 90 damage to the legs and arms, and 300 damage to the head. This weapon guarantees a one shot kill everytime, provided that you hit the torso or head with every shot. Having very powerful damage to the torso, the Springfield is capable of killing 2-full-health opponents with a single shot through both torsos (One bullet passes through two people and killing them). The German scoped Kar98K, having the exact same damage characteristics, can also achieve the same feat.
