    Trying to play with pictures - and while I'll never manage the photos ThePitBullofLove does at least I'm having fun.

    Yeah it does sort of. But truly it's in better shape than it looks. Very few dings and dents in the stock itself - just needs a little more TLC.

    Unfortunately it has a long way to go to match the Remington 03A3

    Hell, any little dings, dents, and wear are just "patina" on a military weapon. It gives 'em character.

    Nice find, "T"......but leave some for the rest of us, huh?

    Benny, this is my second 03. The first is sporterized but I now have all the parts and pieces (including one gorgeous stock) to put it back to close to original (it'll never truly be original because of the holes drilled in the receiver (side) for a scope mount).

    Good luck on the CMP deal. From what I've seen online most have gotten pretty dang good ones - outside of having to clean a bucketload of cosmoline out of them.

    Good evening Near Sighted Sniper and yes that's me on AssaultWeb.

    You've got an 03A3? Click on my name and send me a pm - I've got a handguard you can have for it - came with my 03 stock a friend found and got for me and I've since found a handguard for it.

    Your more than welcome to 03A3 handguard.

    Don't know anything about Nat'l Ordinance I'm afraid - but hopefully it'll turn out to be a good gun.

    Tried to send you a pm but you have that disabled.

    Smokin - the Nat'l Ordinance is the 03 that Near Sighted Sniper put on layaway.

    All I own are Springfields (in the '03's) and a Remington 03A3. The Springfield in the picture I have not yet had the pleasure to shoot but since I know the person I bought it from I can pretty much say if he says it shoots good then it does.

    However, I've yet to meet a 03 or 03A3 that I don't think shoots like a dream - just wish I could afford them all.

    And who you saying is out of control here? At least for a change I'm picking a gun that I can buy ammo for!
