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
Why in the world would you downconvert an A4 to A3?
There are so many fakes out there, along with reproductions built out of drill rifles, that a remiled A4 on a legitimate receiver would be of considerable value.
