Default New Addition 1903A3

went to the gunshow today sold my ruger sr556, cz97b, and kimber conversion. picked up a 1903A3 and got more than enough left over for my 460 rowland kit(ordering it monday) and pay for my gsg 1911-22, bersa thunder 22, and 500 460 cases. plus enough after that for the wife and i to go see the rite tomorrow fill up my truck with gas and get pizza after the movie.

for the experts what is the purpose of the sling thingy just behind the bayonet lug??

and i do have a bayonet for it.

oh yeah to make this thread not worthless here are the pics. and yeah i know i suck at photography.

Congratulations. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

The sling swivel looking piece is a "stacking swivel".

whats it for?? im going to google it now that i got the name. im a nub to the 03a3 but im rapidly falling in love with it. wont get to shoot it for another 3 months at the rate winter is going the wife really likes it she likes the wood stock. said she wants to shoot it and she isnt a riflewoman.

edit: ok now i feel stupid. its for stacking rifles together in a teepee. duuuuuh. i thought it was for making the sling shorter or something.
