I'll accept blame for some of this calamity. However it was already drilled for a scope when I got it. I suspect this rifle spent some time as a XTC match rifle as sometime. It wore a Lyman XNB front sight (sold), and the receiver is drilled for a side mount aperture sight.

The C stock appears to be a real piece of WW2 wood that has been modified for match use. Mods include a rail for handstop/sling swivel, removal of buttplate and install of recoil pad, and an ebony grip cap.

The redfield Jr rail is a bit of my work. This is a M1903 receiver that is appearing to us as a 1903a3. The length of a 1903 redfield rail would not install with the 03a3 handrail, so I chopped a bit off in the front. Additionally the redfield rail holes did not align with what was already drilled and tapped on the receiver, so I welded up the redfield rail and drilled them to match. If I recall right, there is a single screw in front and single in rear. Not the best, but you work with what you have.

The scope, I believe, is a nice older example of a Weaver K2.5. That was my intention at the time. Now, looking at it, I see no markings. It is a fixed 2.5x, post and line reticle. Optically clear with some bits of dust. The bell has a couple small dings. Overall the body shows wear with brass showing through at the end rings.

The bolt handle is my most embarrassing work. I basically lost interest in the project prior to finishing. It needs more sanding, filing and finishing. I feel it is structurally sound. I can throw in an extra bolt body in case the next owner would like to take his own try at it.

The trigger is a commercial replacement. Marker Jaeger.

It shoots fantastic. Even as it sits, it would make a fine deer rifle. This rifle has many original WW2 parts, but it is what it is. I am trying to be honest and forthcoming in the description.

From ~20ft away it would pass for an 1903a4, but it will never be CMP games compliant since it is built on a M1903 receiver.



I have many more pictures available for those interested.

Asking $450 for local sale. Shipping can be discussed. I will ship only to FFLs, even if you live across the street.

Thanks for the interest, but not interested in scopes.

Might consider trades for 9mm glocks, or some SW or Ruger wheelguns.
