The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Springfield Model 1903


Arthur B. Burnett said...

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!
