I'm in the process of getting a 1903A3 back to snuff and it's not going as well as I hoped. I bought a 1903A4 receiver, barrel and bolt and S style stock for $150 and figured it was a good deal. after ordering a rear sight to convert it back to a A3 and all the little small parts like floor plate and sights and carving a relief in the stock for the bent bolt it's coming to about $400 for a bubba'd gun with little collectors value. a little rust is fine, I have a heavily pitted savage enfield number 4 that is by far the best shooter in my milsurp collection. rust adds character in some cases and in most cases does little to cause safety issues.
