I built this 1903 because I've always wanted to do it but I don't have the time to take it out and properly enjoy it.
I bought the S&T M1903A3 base from SfcMigs. He had these upgrades installed:
1)Action Army zero trigger box (VSR-10) installed.
2)Stainless Steel Spring guide
3)Stainless Steel Cylinder and nozzle cylinder head with teflon coating.
I did the following:
1) Installed 1903 sight base (reproduction), 1905 ladder sight (real), lower/upper bands (real), handguard (real) - The sight base cut is a little crude, but the next owner can easily fill the gap between the base and stock with wood putty and cover it up. In any event, you have deliberately look down past the wood line to see it.
2) Installed a set screw in the handguard for hop-up adjustment
3) Epoxied the two piece stock together to make the rifle solid
From what I can see the BBs seem to fly straight and true for quite a while. I haven't had a chance to skirmish it but I'm certain that it is a much better rifle than my last VSR-based M1903A3.
It will come with two magazines but not the sling in the pictures. If the buyer desires a sling I will include a Kerr reproduction for $20.
My asking price is $500 plus shipping

If you can't stand behind our soldiers, go stand in front of them!
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
