    A Smith Corona 03-A3 is one of 2-3 firearms I had to sell off over the years to pay some bill that I really really regret loosing. The other was a tack driver Ruger M77R in 22-250 with one of the first RAM line synth stocks

    I always had something i needed to spend my money on as well the gun and the price were their at the same time, guy had it in his house since 1954.... I never knew this guy had any guns at all used to feed the birds every day...beware quiet old men!

    Why grease it down with tru-oil? You could rub a little tung oil on the stock and keep the finish closer to original. That was a smoking price for an 03A3 in decent condition.

    You should be ashamed of yourself, only paying that much for the rifle...go back and give the old guy more! LOL!!

    Seriously, that is a gem of a rifle, one of my dream purchases.... I'd love an 03A3, an M1 and a 1911A1...but not necessarily in that order. Just have to sell the kids off for medical experiments...

    Presumably it means pics or Get The F(bubblegum) Out. S(bubblegum) or get off the pot would also have been appropriate.

    Nice rifle, Sir, and for a super price too!
