    1903

    Just picked this up from a friend. Said it was his grandfathers. Barrel shows 11-17 and nice and clean. Stock has been refinished and see a small crack behind the tang about 1/2" long. I may have to take this off his hands.20210919_093154.jpg20210919_093217.jpg20210919_093310.jpg

    If he agrees to my price it's staying here. Going to try and get out to the range later today.

    Re: 1903

    Well I made it to the range for a bit this morning. Had a couple of my hunting partners rifles to sight in. So after that %*&# show ( he sent mixed ammo). I got on the bench with the 03.
    I'm glad he's not on any forums so I'm happy to say it's a keeper. Didn't get a picture of the target but I think it shoots better than I can with those sights. Next time out I'll
    be sure and take my time with it and some match bullets. The load was 46.5 gr of IMR4895 with a 165 gr SP.

    Out of a good rifle and with a 168 SMK bullet that load will clean the 600 yard NRA target.

    Love them 03's.
