Do not listen to that link! That 1903 is worthless, and thus you should give it to me to rid yourself of such a burden!
we must have gratuitous gun porn my friend.
03 's are great, do not buy a National Ordinance. I hate to bash something someone else might love, but National Ordinance never made an 03 Springfield. It is a parts gun and I wouldn't give them $150 for it. Most of them won't head space. I have seen quite a few that are unsafe to shoot. In no way is it a collectors item. For the price they are asking you would expect to buy a Smith Corona with the original blue - one that wasn't re-arseneled for the second War, something mint. I paid $325 for mine two years ago. It's a Springfield, re-arsenal with a 1944 barrel. It's not mint , buts its a shooter.
