Is the '17 a mauser? Only thing about them is I don't think they have a windage adjustment. Yep - it's really worth a few minutes to go through some of the past few years of top twenty or so finishers in the CMP games - the '17 is on a steamroll the last couple years ... new barrels? fine tuning finally?custom ammo? I dunno. I'm still a big fan of the swede - good quality piece and an accurate, low recoil cartridge ( something to consider as my geezer quotient increases). Some sort of ghost ring sight would help all the above.

For me, the 1937 S/137 K98k BringBack that my maternal grandfather gifted to me in 1968 when I was 16.

It started me on both milsurps & reloading.

Calling the 03-A3 a "development" is a bit of a stretch. It was basically a wartime expedient model of an obsolete rifle. Had things gone according to plan the troops so-armed would have had M1's.

The '17 is an Enfield. Cock on close.

How much of a "tack driver" is it? 2 MOA at best?

I don't think too many combat troops ever were issued the 03A3. From Guadecanel on just about everyone facing enemy fire did have Garands - and don't forget we went on to Guadelcanel only eight months after Pearl Harbor.

I shoot my Argentine and Persian Mausers in vintage military silhouette matches (open class) with scopes. Both are about 1 MOA shooters.

1 MOA? Pardon my skepticism.
