1903A3 & Trapdoor
« on: February 03, 2020, 09:52:19 am »

 Hi All!!

Hey for those of you who are looking for an '03A3 (cal 30/06) and or a 1880 something trapdoor (cal 45/70), I have a good friend who wants to sell these 2 rifles.  Both are in full military dress and the prices are:  for the 1903A3 $700.00.  For the Trapdoor $800.00.  The trapdoor I know well and have shot it, bottom line excellent rifle.  The 30 I have not seen, however it is in real good shape too.  Please PM me if any of you all have interest and I'll connect you to this gent.  I wanted to put these on our pages first as we shoot them often!  Oh, shipping is $50.00 per rifle.

Don

That's an '03A3, and not a 1903 Springfield?  A friend is looking for the latter.

1903: Does it have a barrel sight, or Is the rear sight mounted on the receiver?  Straight wrist or pistol grip? Questions for seller.

Drydock the 1903 is straight grip, sight mounted on the barrel.  He sent me pics, but I'll be in the dark as to how to put 'em on this thread??
