I've almost completed building my two 1903 Faux USMC Sniper rifles. One is a 1.4 million SA with a new SA 3-39 barrel and the other is a 3.2 Remington with a new 6-42 barrel. Both of these rifles I built up from a couple of nasty barreled receivers I had. Except for the scope blocks and the Hi-Lux Unertl copy I had all parts on hand, including the barrels, Keystone stocks, the Unertl scope and Unertl rings on the Hi-Lux scope. I did the parkerizing (first ever attempt) on all parts except for the barrels, the bolt on the 1.4 SA, a couple of the bolt parts and the rear sights. The only work I sourced out was the D&T on the scope blocks. This includes the sculpting of the bolt on the Remington to clear the scope. No need to do the SA bolt since the real Unertl is sleeved and it sits slightly higher.
Both rifles shoot very well out to 600 yards. The target below was shot at 200 yards from position with a sling. Two five shot groups; the 1.4 SA shots (w/flyer) are on the left and the 3.2 Remington on the right. Both shot using Hornady Garand Match ammo, before I had a chance to work on some custom loads.
Since the rifles were built using almost entirely parts on hand, acquired when parts were cheap, I was able to build both rifles for just under 2K total (not each), including the Hi-Lux scope.
Sorry for the large pics.
