    Bubba 03A3 Remington

    Recently got an 03A3 from Bubba that I know very little about.
    After some research, it seems to have an A4 bolt, and Bubba hogged out the stock and ground on the bottom of the bolt handle to get it to close.
    Otherwise, it looks pretty good, and seems to function, though the bolt closure is not as smooth as it should be. It is probally a parts rifle, so getting the headspace checked might be a good idea.
    My computer doesn't seem to let me insert pictures into this post because of security issues , but I did upload some poor quality pictures to my album.
    Can others view my album?

    If so, I would welcome any info and input into this rifle.

    Hi Johnny

    I use photobucket to get pictures onto these forums, just create the album and link to it with open access. Its way simpler than getting photos on to this site.

    Its not an original A4 bolt, they don't need the receiver to be relieved. I use vishooter.net to check barrel dates and receiver manufacture. What are you going to do with it, Faux3A4 or just check it and keep it running?

    I dunno.
    At this point, it has been the only '03 I have come across in my area.
    probally just keep it, check it and and shoot it.
    The front ring on the receiver has been tapped, so it looks like someone had a scope on it at some point.
