Farr's record-setting 1903 Springfield rifle that was made famous at the 1921 National Rifle & Pistol Championships in Camp Perry, Ohio when Farr used it to hit 71 consecutive bulleyes before nightfall made continuing impossible. Known as one of the best bolt-actions of all time, the 1903 Springfield, used by Americans in WWI and WWII, will soon see its 100th anniversary. Originally aired 9/8/2011.
