Back on topic for a moment-

The trigger on the 03A3 was a little on the heavy side, so I swapped in a slightly lighter main spring and cleaned up contact surfaces with a hard Arkansas stone. A little below 4.5 lbs pull but a little more work to do- need a better fitting trigger pin and could drop the pull a little more. Bore cleaned up like a mirror with moderate effort. Proper torque to the action screws, and off to the range:

SR-1 at 100 yards, off the bench. 2 shots to the left still sighting in. Last 5 shots all 10's with 3 X's. I just grabbed some 155's that I shoot in my match Garand but will normally shoot 168's in a '03. I picked this one to be a shooter and appears I did OK.
