Wow - a G&H, that is top of the line. I do enjoy them.

I have a copy of 'The Book of the Springfield' by Crossman. Has photos of his custom '03 which I recall is a G&H. That rifle is a work of art. Even the Lyman rear sight is engraved.

Thanks

I'll have to look into that book. I love 1903 based target rifles.

My G&H target rifle is somewhat of an oddity. Apparently they did not make many, but I did find reference to a few in the distant past.

This is the thread on it, if you are interested.

For some reason I thought that might be a Fajen.

By today's stands it looks unusual. I assumed the stock would not be user friendly for prone. But for me the stock works great for head position/sight align and how it fits the trigger hand/trigger finger position.

Proves to me a vertical pistol grip is not necessary.

Thanks, I will check out the thread.

For an '03 aficionado Crossman's 'The Book of the Springfield' is a must have. Includes the full range or service rifle, armory match rifles, full customs, hunting rifles, accuracy improvements, sights and scopes....etc. Plus to me the author's style is entertaining.

'Hatcher's Notebook' by Julian Hatcher is another great book about the '03 (and other things).

For out of print books the website AbeBooks is the place to go. Not an auction site but a listing of used books for sale from all over the world.

I agree that the stock is indeed a Fajan Aristocrat. I recently fitted one like it made of walnut for an 03A3 that my Dad did up as a 6mm Remington. I also added a variable power scope to it, making it one of my most accurate rifles.

The stock was one that I got in 1997 from Fajan when they were going out of business. It works very well with the scope. The only downside of this rollover comb design is that you cannot easily "switch hit" with it and shoot left handed.

Thanks for the stock ID confirmation. It fits me real well in prone.

Here's one of my favorite '03 target rifles:



#12xxxxx, Style-T type rifle, rebarreled by John Dubiel circa 1936.

Your picture is ginormous. Reduce it to 800-1000 pixels wide so people can view it.

I think I fixed it.
