I went to college in '65-'69, then 3 years in the Army. In that time, my 03-A3 disappeared , as did my model 97 Winchester 12 Guage. My dad was in the habit of swapping stuff for other stuff, so unless it was nailed down or out of his reach, BEWARE !

I guess we have several thing in common. I know one of the friends of one of my three younger brothers took my 03-A3 and my Browning Auto 5. They knew if I found out who did it they would have hell to pay so no one ever let it slip. To this day I don't know who got them.

Sounds to me that I would take one at least from each of my brothers and see how that feels. Maybe then one of them may come forward with the answer, but please remember to forgive them, life is too short. There still with the good Lord willing more time for each of you fun range time and hunt'en / fish'en !

Thank you. And the same to you. Now if I could find a woman that was as loving and loyal as my cat I would truly be blessed!!!

Wow!! 29.95 what a great price for 1903/A3!!

Sounds like a very fun project with a lot of great memories,my Dad bought a lot of stuff from Herters in 60s.

Thanks for sharing.

I just can't sell one after I purchase one??
I think it goes all the way back when I sold my Remington 1100 20 ga.?? It was my first semi auto shotgun that was a gift when I was 9 years old,I sold that shotgun for tires on my ride? Since then i've never sold a firearm.

I have a few firearms,but never enough lol
