M2 trainer
 
Any body on here have an M2 trainer? I saw some pictures on the net and wondered if anybody had some experiences with them. I'd love to have one.

A nice rifle,accurate,heavy,and expensive.Don't buy one without a clip and do a LOT of homework before looking for one.Don't buy a butchered one or one missing parts,they're made of unobtanium.

I began my competitive shooting vareer with an M2 in 1953 as a cadet. I have one now. It shoots better than I can.

I have one, too. You can buy a rifle for what it costs for a complete bolt. I learned to shoot on one in ROTC. I love mine.

Are we talking about the M1922, which transitioned to the M1922 MI, then the M1922 MII, then the M2 (receiver markings)? Trainer for the M1903?

If so, I've heard a lot about them, all good. But they seem to be pricy.

Which variant would make the better shooter?

I have an M2. Excellent rifle. But as others have said, don't get one without the research, and make sure it is complete with clip. Parts are nearly non-existent, and when available, very expensive.

Many that you see for sale have been modified/butchered, so be careful and good hunting!

These rifles have never been cheap.The one I have now I paid about $750 for 20 years ago.It's an unrebuilt service style.

I piad $800 for a decent one with a slightly sporterized stock at a gunshow a couple of years back. I was fortunate to find a M1903A3 mounted on a M1922 stock and make the switch.

I took it out to the range awhile back, along with a $75 cheapie .22. I hate to say that I had a number of misfires with the M1922 and almost none with the cheapie. Guess I'd better look at the bolt and see what's going on.

It has a magazine. But for what you have to pay for one, you are the one who gets clipped.

Best!
