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.

Local auction tomorrow has 1901A3.

M1903, M1903A3 and M1917.

Sporter. Looks to have the original stock, chopped. The original barrel minus the front sight and wings. Someone pounded the top and bottom of the bolt ball flat but I have spare bolt bodies. It has been drilled and tapped and has a scope mounted. I have already rescued and Smith Corona and I am not sure I really want to get into that again but what do you think? If I can get it for around $300 I might go for it. The drilled holes can be plugged with studs, the stock can be replaced or spliced under the band but it is going to take some time, money and work..............

NO EXPERT. Try for 200.00. additional fees at auctions can kill the budget. Is it a M 1903A3. 0r a M1903A1 ?
