I scored all the correct original parts and a decent original stock to bring this "old soldier" back to factory spec.I might parkerize it first though.
Wow! Great deal. Have you shot it?
Ive been pricing 1903's for awile, my brother wants one.. It was his first rifle, and he wound up having to sell it for car repairs when he was a young recruit. best price ive seen so far is around 150 bucks for one in poor/avg condition, yours appears to be in much better shape, so either a money maker or a good buy.. Load up on 30.06. Shotgun news has real good buys on slings if your gona go for the original look.
a deal grease, what kind of shape was it in when you got it?
exactly how i bought it.the chamber and bore are spotless.everything is tight.the only bad thing is they drilled the barrel for that site.so i will just plug the holes and it will be covered by the top wood anyway.its too bad they cut up the stock that is on it,it is really a nice piece of wood.havent shot it yet.i want it original when i do.
