I'm new to this group and I know there's been talk about the wonderful 1903 Springfield and the M1917 on this page. I have been looking into buying one or the other. I have a 1915 M38 Swedish Mauser that I'm wanting to sell/trade. If anyone knows of any original 1903-A3s or M1917s for sale that'd be great! Does anyone know a great deal about the M1917 30-06, or possibly have any suggestions on which one of these two rifles would be a smarter purchase? I'm wanting a shooter, not a mantel piece/dust collector. Thanks!!!!!
