Greetings from Texas,
I came across a Remington built 1903 in a pawn shop while living in Houston about 20 years ago. The price I paided was a steal even then.
Evyl Robot is correct that if he had spent more time with it his group would haven gotten better.
The last time I had it out my standing group at 100 yards was under 3 inches and I know people who would laught at me for that.
If I didn't have an M-1 Garand in the rack next to it I would not hesitate to pick up the 1903 if problems arose here at HomePlace. This is a wonderful rifle once you make friends with it.

Hey there Art, good to hear from you again.

I am envious; you have a great old rifle there... they sure are getting scarce... and mighty pricey!
