Hello String1946,
First off I just want to say, "Thank you for your service!" I'm currently serving as well. Also, thank you for the pictures of your collection. You certainly have some beauts. Do you happen to know of anyone that is willing to trade/sell a 1903-A3?

I don't know if your familar with www.gunbroker.com or www.gunsamerica.com but I would start by looking there. Thanks for your comment on my babies. lol. Also I'm not sure if you have something similar at your location but here in Georgia we have a free magazine that comes out once a month I believe called Georgia Outdoor News. Their web side www.gon.com has a classified section (GON Marketplace) that usually has a good selection of firearms for sale that are close enough to just go pick them up if you find something you like. And thank you for your service to our country.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis

Welcome to the site from SE Indiana and thank you for your service. Take your time in your search for that 1903-A3. I've owned several over the years and my favorite was a Smith-Carona. The Remington's were nice but the Smith-Carona was really nice and more accurate than the Remingtons. Years ago you could pick these up for almost nothing. Keep looking...you'll find one. Best regards Dick

I have just barely discovered this niche.

I was given a raunchy old 42c that I am trying to revive. Was also gifted a period correct mount and an old weaver scope. Can't wait to get it to the range with some sights (it's currently missing the rear sight)

Doc- unfortunately, sights are one of the most commonly missing parts- and one of the most expensive to replace. A good spot to check for anything Mossberg is havlinsales.com

Vic Havlin and his wife Cheryl sell parts for Mossys, and run the Mossberg Collector's Assoc- and they are very nice folks to deal with.

Mossys are addictive. Have 2 of the 51Ms, 3 of the 151Ks, 3 of the 152s, and 2 of the 46B(b) and 44US versions. And found a 142.

Good website for you- http://home.epix.net/~damguy/

I joined up over at rimfire central and have been browsing the damguy site and have made an order with havlin!

Also I have an S102 on the way to me in the mail. The scope jus got here sooner.

Unfortunately....I am missing a magazine too and those lil bastids are like 50-70 bucks!
