    03-A3 Match Rifle in .308 cal #2

    This is a match rifle built on a polished and blued 03-A3 receiver. Receiver is D&T for a Redfield rear micrometer sight base. It has a headless cocking piece, can't remember the type of trigger. It has a heavy stainless Krieger barrel in .308 cal. Barrel is D&T for Redfield bases for a scope and front globe sight. The stock is laminated - never saw another like it, it has only three layers.

    Main reason I bought this was that it had a 24X Redfield 3200 scope on it. Got both for less than the scope is worth. Put the scope on the wife's 40X smallbore prone gun.

    Dont think I have ever seen a muzzle like that one. Looks like the chamber end of the barrel!

    I've seen one on my Volquartsen barreled Ruger 77-22.

    Anschutz used the muzzle swell design on smallbore target rifle barrels for years. I have heard it was to prevent bore diameter at the muzzle from increasing when the outside diameter of the barrel was machined down to size due to strain relief. If bore diameter is going to vary, you want it tighter at the muzzle, in effect a choke.

    I never saw that feature on a high power rifle either. I figure the guy who speced out the barrel shot an Anschutz in smallbore. That makes sense because the Redfield 3200 it had on it was a popular scope for smallbore.
