thats the one that has the unusual side mounted magazine on the right side correct.. If i remember my mil rifle stuff this was an old black powder round 30-40 Krag Jorgensen..

If its the one i think it is the magazine pivots from the front and you pull back the follower and drop in 5 of the big things.. Never heard it was a bad choice.. Know the story on that, i figured it was just replaced due to the 03 being a better rifle..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
