Default Firing Smith-Corona M1903A3 from N.Store (video)

Hi all
My son made a video of me firing a Smith-Corona M1903A3 that I bought from the from North Store on 1-5-2017. Firing is at 100 yards, prone with sling.

Thanks to "BJ", a fellow customer, for his advice and helping me sort through the 12 or so that where available.

Cost was $650.

I think this rifle is a keeper.

I recognize the armorer's initials on the hanging tag. Your rifle was one of nine rifles I inspected that day. And as I noted on your hanging tag, your rifle had a splendid 6-groove bore.

I am happy that you are pleased with your rifle. And thanks for your patronage!

J.B.

Thank you for your service to the CMP, and everything you do for present and future customers!

Thank you folks for your kind comments about the youtube video's. My son and I go shooting often, and try to promote the sport.
