I hope your little girl gets to feeling better. I'm really looking forward to hearing about how it shoots. Keep us posted!

Thanks from Lurp

Someone spent some $$ one this at some point, that ain't no cheap rigged up stock. The scope looks to be mounted very well.

Good looking rifle. One of the better looking bolt handle jobs I have seen on these, they are usually pretty butt ugly.

Thanks from Lurp and Wasted ammo

Lurp, when you get time I would enjoy seeing some up close pics of that stock inside and out. I like wood, I have been working with it one way or another my whole life.

Am I seeing things or is that the original Barrel. I would definitely turn that into a fake a4. Looks like the original park on the receiver. Pick up a stock and a Repro scope mount send that thing to Warpath vintage!

In my opinion you have two options with the rifle.
1. Turn it into a faux 03A4. If you are going to go this route then do it right and not a half ass job. The bolt is functional for the build. It is a brown and Sharpe replacement bolt that has been turned down. The safety would need to be changed. It is an original barrel and could be used depending on how it gauges. No sense doing a expensive build with a barrel that is shot out. The biggest issue is getting a one piece scope base on the rifle. To me, a faux 03A4 with two piece bases stick out like a sore thumb and would not be legal in CMP type events if you ever wanted to use it for match shooting. New holes can be drilled as long as the current holes are not in the way. The current holes are not going to match up for a one piece base. The base would cover all existing holes.
If you go this route I would suggest you contact chuckindenver for some of the smith work. The 1903a3 receivers are notorious for being difficult to drill and tap due to hardness.


2. Keep it just like it is. It looks like a nice rifle right now. Good looking stock. You wouldn't have to sink anymore money into it.

Thanks from Lurp

While generally not a fan of sporterized mil-surps, the smith seems to have done a good job. If it shoots well, which is likely if the bedding is still good, there'd be nothing wrong with leaving it as is.

If you decide to go with a 1 piece scope base, ccop makes one that is steel for 1903a3 and runs about 27$ on ebay. You may luck out with the front hole already drilled in the reciever. If it doesn't line up, it is cheaper and easier to weld the hole closed in the base and re-drill it to fit your existing hole in the reciever. Leupold makes a 1 piece base that has 2 mounting holes in the front that may be an option also.

Thanks from Lurp
