1903's are very accurate rifles. I bought mine at a garage sale a few years ago. My Springfield Armory 1903A1 is dated 9-09 on the barrel, the serial number is in the low 380k, I only shoot cast bullets out of it. I have shot it out to 500 yards with cast bullets and have had pretty good results, ussally can hit a 16" off hand 50% of the time.
I bought it with an original M1905 Bayonet with scabbard, I paid $175 the rifle and bayonet and sold the Bayonet and scabbard for $230 on ebay.
I love the action and would like to find another oen to build a "classic" custom in 257 AI.
