    I've spent quite a while trying to figure out why I think the author is wrong, only to come to the conclusion that he may be correct.

    I thought it would take me longer to get an M73b1 and an original Redfield Jr mount, but I just won this scope, original mount, and original rings on ebay. The auction had 34 watchers, so I bet some...

    Very lucky indeed. I'm surprised how hard it is to find the original parkerized base, or even a commercial blued version from the time period with the same stamp and contours. Surprisingly difficult.

    The last portion of this restoration I imagine will take a while.

    I DO have a Weaver 330S scope, and the parkerized hi-lux replica base and vertical split rings. I could pop those on right now...

    I was pleasantly surprised that the stock arrived this morning, three days early. The stock was very dry, badly needing oil, but was in every bit of nice condition as I hoped. After oiling, a "K"...

    And the most recent development that brings us to where I currently am. I found this stock set listed on gunbroker as a "1903a3 Type 13" stock. Again, I'm not an expert on all the "types" but I think...

    It certainly may have been an a4 reject. That would make as much sense as anything really. But this stock has no markings, so I don't think it was on the rifle when it went through final inspection,...

    I'm not an expert in forged cartouches, and certainly not on M1s, but the stock would have received those stamps as part of an inspection as a complete rifle. The stock and stamps are in such good...

    M1903a4 Restoration Project

    One of my favorite aspects of the milsurp hobby is restoring rifles that have been messed with. As we all know, its too common to find them in badly sporterized condition, but its not all that common...

    1903a4s in the SRS list

    I've seen members state certain 1903a4 rifles are listed in the SRS list as "CMP inventory." My copy of the list doesn't have any of those rifles.
