Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

One thing that's been disturbing me. It appears that the cocking handle is somehow upside down. I wonder why that is.

Re: Sporterized 1903 Found Locally. Help Me Decide...
