    Is it me, or is there practically nothing out there (on the web) for M1903 information, at least in comparison to the M1 Garand stuff.

    Does anyone know of any good resources on the web for this rifle?

    If you an answer on a forum and can wade through some occasionally arrogant people, the CMP forums is still one of the better sights. Also has an excellent marketplace dedicated to different things including mostly US milsurp bolt actions and parts...

    I agree, the CMP forums are pretty good. But I tend to go there just to read. One wrong word and I am a big dummy, and then mayhem ensues. Then I get banned again. :(

    There are several good books on them, a couple are out of print now and demand a premium. But still worth it, in my line of work.
    The Vi Shooter page is a great resource! I have used it for years.

    This is a pretty good resource book, but getting hard to find. I found one for $75
    And a quick search I found a few around the $50-60 range, used of course.

    Thanks guys, kinda parts, mostly info etc. I'll check out the links.

    I had a lot easier time finding stuff on the Garand, but the M1903 just seemed a lot more sparse for online info.

    I'm not sure if this will surprise you or not.
    But we do have people here that know about these guns. And would enjoy seeing some detailed pictures. ;)

    Nothing to photograph yet, embarrassingly the Garand is still in parts over a year later (rectified soon!)

    The 1903? Soon(ish) to come, similar situation, but not yet owned by myself, it's being prepared :)
