    WTB: 1903 sight base

    I need a 1903 rear sight base with lightening cuts. I need one that still has nice even greenish park. I don't need the sight assembly. Thanks!

    This stock came with a 30-06 rifle installed and I changed out the stock so this is for sale. It is in fantastic shape except for the cut off relief, which shouldn't be there. The pistol grip has had...

    I think the barrel is original to the rifle. The serial# and the barrel date and the star gauge number that the book shows had no accompanying letter from serial# range 1220000 to about 1250000....

    The star gauge mark was first used on the 1921 match rifles. The numbers didn't always have a letter included. I'm sure this is a star gauged barrel. The muzzle being worn make the stamp look fuzzy.

    The sight scale goes to 125 yds, I think at least the scale is right for the match rifles. What would have gone where the original sight collar is missing and the barrel is in the white? The bore is...

    What do I have here, 1903

    I bought this for $500 because I can't control myself. When I bought it there was a leather wrap around the barrel where the sight collar would have been. It went all the way to the forearm tip and...

    I think it was kind of neat to find it. Sitting Bull is buried about a mile from my house and I live 100 miles from Ft. Lincoln so at least it's back in it's rightfull territory.

    What is this star stamp for on this 1903?

    I took 4 digit 1903 apart the other day to see what all the mixed parts actually were and I noticed this star stamp on the sight base. The sight base is an early 1905 that was originally for a 30-03...
