In the first video, are those springfield rifles?

Wouldn't they be over 100 years old?

Yes, they look like 03-A3 bolt action Springfield's.
WWI and some were used in WWII.and even into Korea.
We had several in the Marines in the 60's in Viet-Nam with scopes.
Just like the Mauser..very accurate.
And they still are sought after even today.

We had an NROTC (Whiskey company) that used to do those close quarter drills spinning bayonettes attached rifles in like an 8 by 8 block intersecting each otherr at 90 degrees and missing each others faces by less than 2 inches - if all went well - it was quite the campus spectacle. They were crazy. Never trusted Navy guys with rifles after that - probably why I joined the Army...:rofl:
