I am just wondering if you already purchased a 1903-A3 would you be able to purchase one of the 1903-A4s, or does it count as the same?

I also picked up a Rock Island Arsenal 1903 (1919) and I think it has an original barrel (9/18). I'm going to identify the other parts as well. The trip was well worth it.
Good luck Friday on your choices.
I was the one who pointed that out to ya.....I overlooked it and would have jumped on it had I not missed it. I DID get a Mark I though....just finished at the local range (I drove straight home to NOVA) and IT is dead on....I just wish I was! Now ....got the clean it and help resolve the dry stock! Enjoy them both.

We are heading home to South Florida after almost 4 weeks on the road in the western United States. After attending the Winchester Arms Collectors Association show in Cody, Wyoming we had to choose between hitting CMP North or South stores. Based on reports here we chose to head south to the South Store. I am grateful to PH68 for his many detailed reports and especially his mention of M1903 rifles. I came looking for an M1903A1 and an International Harvesterade M1 rifle. I left with an M1903A4, a nice IHC M1 and a 6 million serial number range M1 rifle. I am very happy. Now where do I find a M1903A4 bolt, scope base, mount and scope that I can afford?

Default Friday Closing Report

I stopped by store at closing and this is a pretty good guess at what they had.

1903, 5

1903a3/A4, zero, but I think there may be one or two tomorrow, no more...

IHC SG/FG, 10

SA FG, 8, there was a USMC 0-67 present this morning, sold...

HRA FG, 2

WRA SG/FG 6

Good luck on your searches.

My best advice is patience. These things come up for sale but usually go for good money when they do. I haven’t seen an original A4 bolt or Redfield Jr. base on the internet for quite some time. M73B1’s and parkerized rings come up on the usual auction sites from time to time. Be wary of fakes as well. There are reproductions of all the components available but if you want correct original, it will take time and money.

Default July 26 Trip

I left Louisiana at 6:00 this morning and was making good time until 27 miles from CMP and I-20 East became a parking lot. 1 hour and 20 minutes later traffic began to move. Wanted a 1903-A4 but got there at 3:50 this afternoon and none. Visited for a few minutes then left for them to close. I will stop in tomorrow morning before heading back home to see if an M-1 “speaks to me.

I've seen two walk into shows in the area, one for $1000 and the other around 750 with lots of accessories and ammo. By comparison I've never seen an UN-QUALITY Carbine which had a similar production quantity.

You don't see too many O-67 Marine Corps Rebuilds. Someone got real lucky.
