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.

1903 Stock question

#1 Post by Hippycrowe » Tue Jul 11, 2017 12:29 pm

I bought this Springfield 1903 900,000 serial range. It shot a little to the right and the barrel had one really big pit so I had a WW 2 HS barrel that was brand new. It still shoots to the right so I would say it has to be the way it sits in the stock

Does the wood looked warped or split IF the stock is cartouched I would resist any alteration IF you have access to a sporter stock , try and install to improve accuracy NO EXPERT

You have a rear sight that is windage adjustable.The front sight is not really designed to be moved. It has centering screws.
Why you messing with the front?

Its over 2 marks on the rear sight, when I got it the front sight was over a bit and corrected aim quite a bit I just figured a new barrel would correct the problem so I centered the front sight

Two marks over on windage does not make your rifle defective, while an uncentered front does not look well.
