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.

BOLT ACTION US RIFLES

As long as I am fabricating, wouldn't be cool to see some Model 1903 , M1917, KRAG and M1903A3 FIND THEIR WAYBACK !!

I agree.
I would like to purchase a newly manufactured 1903a3 rifle if possible.

Didn't Mitchells Mausers have a new production Yugoslavian Mausers for sale a few years ago??
They were very expensive with respect to the surplus costs at the time.

I would think it would be the same issue here. A new 1903 or M1917 would not run from $650 to $1200.... they would be much higher pushing the $1500 mark.

Well if a nice 03A3 floats your boat, 650.00 should go a looooong way to finding one Mitchells did flog around nice shiny rifles for
a while They were flashy and lots of them sold Dismayed buyers took a beating on them when reselling them BUT they were as a rule
safe, reliable guns

Mitchell's Mauser were thieves. I saw a guy buy a "new in the box" Mauser '98 rifle. He was so happy. Look at this rifle he said and handed it to me. It was a Yugo M-48!
You could buy one new for less than 150 bucks delivered. He paid almost 750 bucks for this rifle in a nice wood box, Rip off!
What that company did by cheating the public by refinishing old rifles and selling them for top dollar was always wrong,but buyers flocked to throw their money away.
But hey,you got a real certificate of authenticity of the collector rifle you bought. P.T Barnem was right.

How Mitchell's is still in business is beyond me.
