1903 A3 REAR SIGHT APERTURE MOVES.

Just wondering if anyone has experience fixing the rear aperture on a 1903a3. I have had the rifle for some time now and finally had time and distance to actually shoot.

Pierced primer in Trapdoor.

I have a really nice 1888 Trapdoor rifle that I finally got around to shooting with Black Hills 405 FBL ammo. I was able to hit 500 meter gong regularly and 300 was almost automatic.

Thanks for all the replies! I can't wait to get her up and running.
I am indeed lucky to have a wife that although is not into firearms per se but, enjoys seeing me happy. I have several nice rifles and pistols that I would never have got with out her encouragement and prodding.

Beretta 1935 4UT

Picked this beauty up a few months ago and thought I would share. Came with holster and 2 magazines. Looks practically unfired, not a scratch on it. The guy I got it from claims he picked it up from a WWII veteran's wife years ago.
