Default 1903A3 Drill Rifles

Been 6 months or so since I have made it out to TMP, for those who have visited recently has there been any 1903A3 drill rifles for sale?

Looks like they are regularly available at North Store so hoping part of that stash starts finding its way to TMP.

I have not seen a bolt action rifle at the TMP for probably a year, apart from the display model behind the counter. I wish I had bought a 1917 when they were on the racks last year.

I'm so glad I got my service grade 1917 Remington last year... since that day I can't remember the last time 1917 or 1903A3 available.

North store definitely had them but they looked really rough. What do you do with drill rifles? Was trying to figure out the allure. Wish some of the Garand drill rifles weren't welded, looked like some low serial numbers with decent receivers.

Reactivate them back to functional rifles. Tons of threads on here on the topic.

This gives the general idea: https://www.ktgunsmith.com/03A3.htm

Kind of what I guessed but I remember reading some debate over damage to heat treating. That article makes me want to purchase a drill rifle now.
