Sounds like I'm going to have to keep looking until I can find an 03.

Thanks,
John

I built an 03A4 forgery using an 03 action. This was about 25 years ago. It probably won't qualify in a sniper match but it's an accurate and fun gun. I have it set up with a Weaver 330 scope with post reticle. I also have a Weaver K2.5 with post to interchange. Though for most shooting I use a Weaver K4 with crosshairs.



Here's another fun gun I built.
M1908 Brazilian Mauser, rebarreled to 30/06, stock cut to short rifle length, handguard filled, Lyman receiver sight and front sight, modified bolt.
My cast bullet "Chicken Rifle" for steel chickens.
Looks kinda like an 03A3.
