Default Smith Corona sported 03A3 range report.

A few years ago I bought a sported SC 03A3 with the thought of converting it to a CMP vintage sniper match 03A4. I never really followed up on the plan, but yesterday I took the SC out and shot it.






As you can see, the rifle has a Redfield rear sight and, interestingly, a 6 groove barrel. I pulled the #3 shot, but rifle grouped quite well at 100 yards with the target sight and Federal 150 gr Powrshok commercial ammo.

Nothing wrong with your rifle. I did the same thing to a sporterized 03A3. Mine has a 2 grooved barrel and the Lyman rear sight and is a tack driver.

Great shooter as it is. Why not leave it that way and start your sniper project with a Remington 03A3 that needs more work?

Well, I do have this one that would require a new barrel, but already has a scope base and turned down bolt...
