, but then replaced the bm, magazine, follower, etc. with original milled parts and somebody told me doing that makes it an '03-A1. Is that right?
I haven't fired this gun for awhile due to fact that not long after getting it, I noticed this:
Quite a bit of family attachment to this rifle and have been concentrating in other rifles, but need to figure something out on this soon as I'd like to have one of my girls use this for hunting at some point. Any ideas?

I've got three of these, still in the cosomline and glassine wrap. Been thinking about doing up an '03-A4 (okay, so it'll be an '03-A faux) and now have all the parts to get the project underway.
You might take a look at Crossman's book on the Springfield, or the more recent works of Col. Bill Brophy. Hatcher's Notebook will also have some info that should interest you on this subject.
