Fantastic rifles by the way. They can get shoot at some impressive ranges.

The blown up rifle pictured is 1903, not a 1903A

There is a BIG DIFFERENCE!

The 1903A3 rifle has no collectors value. The bolt has been altered and the stock has been ruined. These rifles sell for around $200 dollars for someone wanting a shooter.

Bolt looks good to me...
Looks like it just needs a stock to me to be mil-spec again.
