    One line beside the other, didn't expect you'd have any headspace problem. Certainly not enough to count.

    2 thumbs up for my brownells vise. The no. 5 bushing and lead sheet work great, and as a plus over using a larger bushing up on the shoulder I could still view the witness marks. The cheap bowling ball rosin seemed to work fine too.

    I bought this rifle several years ago at Cabela's gun library. Whoever priced it thankfully realized what it was. It seemed to be an arsenal rebuild or CMPicon refurb since all the furniture was a nice, clean, light grey zink parkerized. The straight stock was an unmarked, likely NOS, replacement. It shot OK, but the stock fit was atrocious. Barrel was free floated - no contact at forend, minimal contact behind the lug, and not much wood left to work with. The magazine was contacting the receiver all around.
    Thankfully, I had an m1903 parts rifle, 12/42, that came in a replacement A3 scant stock. I've posted about that rifle here - it got a new Minelli stock and so this A3 is trying on the hand-me-down scant. It has more to work with. Shooting and playing with the bedding, if necessary, is next.

    So out to give it a wring out? Let's have a look then. Should be fine.
