    I do not believe the number on the butt is original.
    Wartime or no, these Colts has better quality control than stamp the numbers all misaligned like that.

    I had a Polish rifle almost identical to this. Fun little rifle for plinking in the basement.

    The receiver markings on a genuine 03A4 are spaced such that they’re not covered up by the scope mount.

    That’s the only thing to look for if you’re concerned about having the genuine article. ...

    WTB: Smith and Wesson J-Frame Grip Adapter

    Hey all,
    I have a really ragged Smith and Wesson 36 I’d like to add a grip adapter to.
    Problem is, I don’t want to put a shiny new accessory on a nicely worn firearm.
    Anyone have a used, beat up,...

    And didn’t France do the same with the rifles Remington built for them?

    I’ve never had any issues with Remington firearms of that era but there is a common denominator here....

    I believe the government bought lots of Mosins from Remington and Westinghouse after the Bolshevik revolution prevented them from being sent to Russia.
    These firms were the “too big to fail” of the...

    It's possible that $1,200 includes premiums. Some auctions list their final value that way. I'm not familiar enough with this auction house in general, or Proxibid specifically, to know if that's...

    The saga continues.

    The seller is looking at a pretty tight profit margin...even if it goes for the buy it now price. Tighter than I like to work!

    You’ll need to line the barrel anyway for a 22. So yes, it would 100% handle a 22.
    The question really is, how much is that worth to you? Do you want to spend $500 converting a $25 paperweight...

    Searching sold listings on GunBroker isn’t as streamlined as it is on eBay.

    First, select “advanced search” near the search bar. Then select “completed listings.”

    This is the real shortcoming...

    I’d take a hard pass on the 1903. It’s not worth anything near that.

    You’re definitely ahead of the game on the Winchester. I browsed through some sold listings on GunBroker just now. I’d put...

    $200 is a pretty good price on one of those.
    Buy it. If you have regrets, someone else will give you $300 for it.

    Looks pretty good to me! I love the script font used for the serial numbers on the early 1903s.

    I've had my eyes out for an early one like this. I have a pretty deep stable of nice 1903 sporters...

    I let a buddy at work borrow my carbine for some plinking.

    I’m not positive about your question directly but I think you will find a P14 stock cheaper than a 1917 stock.

    MUCH lower. I'm in the neighborhood of 6% all told for GunBroker and more like 14% on eBay.
    eBay gives you an edge in terms of visibility but obviously you can't sell guns on there so that doesn't...

    I took a look through GunBroker for you. This carbine is not currently listed there. It was worth a shot.

    Good luck on your hunt!

    Whoops. That was a slip on my part. I meant to say, "that's a choice that individual SELLERS make."

    That’s a choice that individual buyers make. I sell on GunBroker and take cards right through GunBroker. I’ve contemplated charging a fee to take anything BUT cards. It’s more convenient for me...

    Oh I’ve been bidding with them for a good long while now.
    Most of what I’m buying these days is for resell so I’m not real stiff competition if you want something for a personal collection.
