BTW, the 1903 Mk 1 does have windage adjustment. The rear sight base rotates around a front pivot point to move the battle sight/sight ladder right or left. My buddy's earlier manufacture date 1903 has the same rear sight set up.
You are better off with the K98K. A very handy rifle, one needing only a decent peep sight to make it a superb rifle. You may however wish to consider a Mauser 93 (the Spanish versions are fairly cheap, their 1916 carbine versions are cool too) or a Mauser 96 (Swedish Mausers are usually 96 models). Big difference between the 2 is the presence of a cocking extension on the rear portion of the firing pin of the 96. That enables you to cock the rifle without opening the bolt. Very similar to the (also plagiarized) cocking knob on the rear of the Springfield.

The only one that makes me see red is people calling any Mosin Nagant a Nagant. A Nagant is a revolver, dummy!

Don't know that I have ever heard anybody call a Winchester a Winnie. Heard them called Wins, though. But I have heard them call A Remington a Remmie.

Now if they could just come up with a short winner to mean 7.62X54R! Maybe Rooskie?

Canoe paddle, tent stake, Baseball bat, kindling all come to mind.

Did Alvin York carry a 1903 Springfield or P1917 Enfield?.

Actually no one knows for certain although his son thought he had a 1903 Springfield while history books indicate his unit was issued the 1917 Enfield.

Your response was very educated. I am glad Corporal York had a brain.

Were you attempting to spell extension? I realize you are a senior member but Corporal York did have a brain and he could not spell. I expect no more than I am willing to give. What branch of the service were you in?

I might get kicked out of this group but you have been it for as long as it takes to make senior member.

Junior Member,

Patret

Sgt York's diary indicates that he had to surrender his beloved 1903 Springfield for "that English gun" when his unit disembarked in France. As it is unlikey that he was issued a British Mk III SMLE, or the .303 P-14, it is more likley that he was issued the (Eddystone) Model of 1917 (a .36-06 clone of the British designed, but American made, .303 P-14).

I just love people who call semi-auto rifles assault rifles.
