Yes, I've read the old posts. There were some beautiful rifles built.

When/if this one is finished I will have two - one on a M1903A3 cut off stock (fore end) and one with a custom stock (I hope).

I have carefully saved the pieces from the first rifle (the collar, the stock, etc.) so I can return it to original configuration if I want to. The second one is built up from a purchased Mann barrel, which came only with the collar.

Thanks for all the help and encouragement.

I will post pictures when there is something to show.
