Springfield m1903 a4 national match

Recommended Posts

Good morning, is there a UK dealer that specialises in Springfield m1903 national match rifles? I've long been after one to compliment my rifle collection. I would probably have one of the modern leatherwood hilux 8x scopes replica

A UK specialist on something like a NM will be a hard find...and why look for an original NM rifle then shove a repro scope on it?

The A4 version of the M1903 was not the one with an 8x scope, that was the USMC 1941 sniper rifle - nor was the A4 version built on NM versions of the M1903

A couple or more good reference books will repay their purchase cost by providing some solid information on which you can make a more informed decision

Thanks for your informative replies so far. I see it was the m1903 a1 that came fitted with the unertl 8x

I am currently having a USMC sniper clone made. It took a long while to find a nice 1903A1, they simply aren't around.

If you want a C stock version then it may take even longer.

I wouldn't bother looking for a NM rifle, you'll be looking for a long time and, as already said, why get a rare rifle like that then drill holes in it?

The Hi-Lux Malcolm USMC 8x scope clone is a well made optic and comes complete with the bases. Then find a decent gunsmith to fit it and scallop the top cover.
