Slow progress

It was safe to add another hole where I needed one for the redfield mount. The nice thing is that the mount hides the un-used pair of holes completely.

I've mocked up the scope and again everything should work; bolt clears the scope at the right height

Now to find the rings

should be a nice looking rifle when you're done, I have been builing an A4 back to specs and it is definitely no cheap matter. I highly doubt the C stock that I have on the way is going to be nearly as nice.

Ya'know, they did drill out the last digit on the model number...so maybe it isn't a forgey after all? Plausible deniability

Thanks, but on a real 03A4, the '03A3' is offset on the left side of the receiver so it can be seen with the mount on. Tahuna has a thread on his 03A4 that shows a photo of the '03A3' location

I appreciate the thought though!

Ever so slightly better photo

They work for me when I'm not logged in to either photobucket or TFL so...should work for you

It looks like yours, but in a fake way

alright they seem to be working now. she is beautiful. to the untrained eye your's looks more original than mine since I went a different route with the optics and I still can't get over how nice your stock looks. it is a beautiful A4-gery to be sure, let us know how she does at the range.
