    I knew the stock didn't fit me, it was made for a shorter person. I'm 6'3" and lanky so it didn't fit me

    Just got back from the range this morning. Got my old sporterized Springfield dialed in. Got my new custom ballistic turret from Leupold and got it sighted in at starting yardage of 200 yds. 3 shot group of less than 2 ". The old gal is ready for deer season in September.

    Next week I need to get to the area in the NF that I shoot 400/500 yards and check out the settings.

    Beautiful rifle CC. I'll bet that gun could really tell some stories.

    Shot lots of deer, a couple of moose and a few antelope with it. Would be neat to know the military history of it tho.

    Beautiful setup CC! I also have an 03A3 that my Dad sporterized and gave to me back in 1973. It was also blued, the bolt turned and safety changed and the barrel was cut down and recrowned just above the flame insignia on the top of the barrel. For years it was in a handmade walnut stock Dad made from a blank. I still have it, but when I started hunting out in Wyoming every year in the 90s I dropped it in a Ramline synthetic stock and put a Timney trigger in it. What a difference that trigger made compared to the military one in shooting tight groups. I finally retired it to just using it up at my cabin in northern MI and now use my pre 64 Winchester Model 70 and Sako 30-06s out in Wyoming. Mine have Leupold VX IIs on them.

    It has a Timney trigger with a side safety. Started out with a Weaver K3, then a K4, a 3x9 Redfield and now a Leupold VXIII 3.5 x 10.
    Back in the 50's you could build a custom rifle out of a surplus military pretty cheap....not true today, factory rifles are cheaper.
