    In person deal for $900...I think thatís a fine price. You wouldnít be stealing it but youíre not overpaying either.

    If you want one, buy it!

    Looks just about perfect to me. Been there, done that. It's the way it should look after a long, eventful life.

    Itís a reproduction of a 1903A4 built off a 1903A3.
    Iíd need to see more pics of the scope to know more about it.
    Even these repros bring $1,000 to $1,200.

    They look almost purposefully hidden. My James Bond riddled brain imagined this was a REALLY early picture and hiding the gas trap was a counter espionage move.
