I took a adventure to one of my LGS for a yugo Mauser. They had 2 of them but wanted $400 for them. So that tells how bad prices are in my area. There mosin nagants 91/30 where $150. Well I ended up finding a 1903 Springfield with a later serial #. For $350. It has the original front site and is missing the rear sight. And has a sportirized stock. I got the wife's blessing to get it. So I am gonna stop there tomorrow and put it on lay away.

That's a fine gun, I have one myself. You should be able to find plenty of options for a rear sight, but they may not be real cheap. Figure on $100, you might find something for less but I would figure on it.

Thanks! The social d is the back of my leather jacket. Is your 1903 sporterized? I wanna return mine to the military stock. First I need to get the rear sight to shoot it. And give it a good cleaning.

Early versions of the 1903 have the M1905 leaf sight, the A3's have a peep sight like the M1 Garand

It actually doesnt look too bad, not much to bring back to G.I spec... :)
