Still looking for mildly sporterized M17's,03's and 03A3's.

Please remember that drilling,tapping,fancy stocks,etc. actually bring DOWN the value in most cases.
I'm not interested in paying $800 for $200 rifles.
"Original" rifles sought as well!
All reasonably priced rifles considered.
Thank you.

At the risk of getting two friends mad ...
I have shot and will shoot a low numbered Springfield IF:
The headspace is good to go and I am shooting ammo loaded to military specs or slightly lower pressure.

That said I would never push my views or say:
"You are wrong for not shooting a low number Springfield."
It is always better to error on the side of caution.

Best of luck in your search STUKA.

Well,the Marines used low number 1903's throughout both world wars, that's a verified fact..however,we all know the mentality of THOSE characters!!
(Jokes of course- don't want to offend any devil dogs!)
I actually collect WW2 USMC stuff;)
