SARCO has a number of different combination deals on 1903/03A3 parts. The one pictured seems to include the parts which are commonly modified or missing on Drill Rifles.

For instance, the Drill Rifle bolt has the firing pin hole welded shut, the cut-off is welded in the down position (so that the bolt cannot be removed), and the striker is shortened by grinding the front down. The rear sight is often banged up, but the one pictured seems to be some sort of dummy one.

The parts shown are probably original replacement parts meant for returning a Drill Rifle to a functional, working rifle. Note that you would also need a new barrel for that project.

I have purchased parts from SARCO and have generally been pleased with the service and quality of their parts. They do have a more extensive package deal which includes more parts for around $150. Note, however that some of the parts are aftermarket/new manufacture replacements, but well made. With that lot, you do NOT get a stock or barrel. They are available for more money.

Tough going with Sarco. Just never know what they will ship to you.

Apex has a pile of 03 and A3 bolts. Most are new and in the grease. Try them as I have been happy with them. But NO to the CC bolts.

CC bolts are safe to use. However, they may not close all the way unless the stock is notched underneath the handle. If the bolt is not fully closed, then the rifle may not fire reliably.

Good Luck!

Hello All,

Sarco is ALWAYS my last hope for any parts purchase .
Numrick / Gun parts, Liberty Tree and APEX are ALWAYS a better seller!

Most (but not all) 1903 or 03A3 bolts are marked on the bolt handle with stamped letters which stand for the manufacturer.
