    I could, but I won't. And I'm doing you a favor. If this rifle has true sentimental value and you know little about them, I envy you your journey. You can fill 95% of the knowledge about the 1903 and...

  4. Check your powder for foreign objects

    Dumped a can of IMR 4895 in my hopper and I see something poking out of the top. Tweezered it out and it's a piece of light gauge wire. Glad it didn't get into the powder dispensing mechanism. What's...

    Another no vote for HXP. Extraction from my 03A1 was problematic to put it mildly. I'm lucky that I stockpiled all that Greek ball when I was shooting Garands alot. Tons of it going around the gun...

    My mistake was using the term "scout rifle". I should have said "Hey, I turned my Swede 38 into a back country hiking rifle." Assuming there's any back country left when the fires go out, I'll expand...

    It depends on how bad it is. For small areas where the finish doesn’t matter I go at it with a brass toothbrush type thing and Kroil. Larger areas with a brass wire wheel. Hard to reach areas I use...

    Swede Mod 38 as a scout rifle?

    Okay so at 8.9 lbs it doesn't technically qualify as a scout if Col. Cooper's standards are to be applied. But since I'm the one carrying it, the colonel can get stuffed. Waiting on my sling kinda...

    I think the CMP HP match rules for an 03 would be the CMP Match Rifle section of the rule book. Everything else is M16-M14-M1 Garand that I can find:

    I got curious my own self. The porting on my K98 bolts is considerably more generous and it has the beefy shroud the Swede lacks. Not giving up my Swedes though. Not like I look like Brad Pitt...
