Very nice looking rifle. I want one, but then again there isn't many rifles that I don't want. Thanks for sharing the photos with us and hope to see a range report in the future.

Nice A3- one of the best rifles made, IMHO.

Nice looking Springfield!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I have one with a 4 groove barrel. This 03A3 was used by the Arizonia Guard Shooting team years ago. I shoot cast bullets in the old girl it is very accurate. Thx for posting your 03A3.

Very nice 03. I have one that was Bubbaized before I got it, sure wish it wasn't. It shoots great but it still isn't pure. The only thing I would do to that one is shoot it and wipe down the stock with some linseed to preserve it.
