    There are hunting forums and brand specific forums. What type of iron do you own? This is a pretty good forum across the board. Lots of good info here.

    Good luck... ;)

    I frequent glocktalk and ar15.com. Great rifle info on ar15. One of the best survival and preps forums over on glocktalk.

    Something for most everybody in the Culver sites: http://www.jouster.com/CSP_forums.htm


    Brian. Millions of 1903's were sold since WWI and lightened for hunting. A lot of families used them as their main or only way to put meat on their table during the depression.

    i edited as i was typing. the question is, IF it was chopped, when was it done?
    70 plus years ago or 10 years ago.

    Same thing was true with the Krags. You see very few (comparatively speaking) pristine examples these days. I love my Krag carbine.

    As far as I know it's still original; I'm not too familiar with the history of the rifle and any modifications that may have been done to it. Do you have any pictures of a modified 1903?

    Mine started life as a carbine and was not chopped; however, it did have a nice Lyman peepsight mounted on the receiver which is nicer and more useful than the original ramp. NO, I did not make the changes, I bought it that way. That is one sweet shooting weapon.

    Brian,
    Have you ever had a Sedgley 1903?

    You might have heard of Sedgley barrels installed by the services on some match rifles, but Sedgley also built magnificent sporting rifles on the springfield action, mostly to order by individuals. The rifles are keepers and value higher now than most any original version. They were sought after by monied folks who were willing to wait several months to receive their rifle.

    Even so, Sedgley was critisized for his so-called mass production by some of the country's finest gunmakers in the late 1920's and 1930's who also built rifles on a lesser but probably finer scale. Griffin & Howe made some super fine engraved rifles on the action, A.J. Neidner built match rifles that could compete internationally, Harry Pope, Hoffman arms, and a lot of lesser known custom makers got in the act.

    It was a much different world, one that I often think I'd have prefered to live in than the one we've got now.


    Oh, there's quite a few unaltered Krags around. They're usually cheaper than Trapdoors.
