If the headspace checks out ok and the bore is bright, you have a very nice 03A3. Leave it as is and enjoy shooting it. Your Smith Corona has either a 4 or 6 land barrel verses the 2 land on either the Remington or Springer and were better barrels.

I know, but one can dream. Or I would atleast like to fire each of them at a shoot like Knob Creek or the Big Sandy Shoot.
