    Springfield 1903

    I have a Springfield 1903 in .30/06. It has been sporterised in its original stock, had the butt lengthened (military ones are short - its now normal length) and checkered. Done a long time ago.
    The model is the Remington version made on the Rock Island machinery to original specs (before they cheapened it in WW2)
    Old school top quality action in a class of its own for custom rifles back in the thirties in the US.
    The bore is excellent and sharp and she is an excellent shooter.
    Comes with the proper receiver peep sights favoured for these rifles.

    Been used and hunted so outside condition is about what you see in the photo, used but not damaged. I got it thinking I could make something of it or use it as it is because I like old rifles. I havnt really done anything though, apart from take it to the range.
    (For the service rifle shooters who like a project, this would be a candidate for restoration, has full length barrel etc.)

    Looking to swap it for a sporterised Lee Enfield, no.3 rifle or SMLE. (With open sights, dont care for a scope or scope mounts on it, but as long as you can take them off.) I dont mind what the outside looks like, but it should have a very good bore, and obviously feed and function properly.

    Well I havn't really thought about money. I just want to get a decent .303. I think I payed $400 for it quite a while back.

    If anyone needs a commercial walnut sporter stock for a M1903, I've got one that will be coming up for sale.
