1903A3 Project Finished
 
CollectorChris, this is what your parts rifle turned into with a little help from a few others:

Nothing special about it; just a fun to shoot 1903A3 put together from two batches of parts. The only issue is: it is built on a drill rifle receiver. But it does have a NOS RA 6-43 barrel installed by ChuckinDenver so it shoots fair....:) and the stock has several pretty nice cartouches..

It sure is a shame it has no resale value.....but, it was a fun project and I learned a lot about 1903A3's and little about people while doing it.

Doesn't look bad. Does replacing a barrel take special skill/tools?

To install and ream a new barrel like the one I had put on my rifle takes LOTS of equipment and LOTS of skill which I will never have either of ...:)..
