Looking for a 1903A3

Any thoughts on the Gibbs refurbished rifles?

I'm sure they are great shooters but have no historical value or collectors value. many of them are recovered drill rifles that were demilled and rendered inert and required new bolts and barrels to make them fire again and the stocks on drill rifles are usually trashed so they also have new wood. they do have some with what appears to be polymer stocks, I think they call them hog hunter models that I think are interesting since they are still the fill length 2 piece military stocks with bayonet lugs but I would never pay the prices that they ask for them.

for that price I can get one with 100% original parts and still has all of the...character... intact. I don't buy bubba'd guns. I have been known to make a couple but I don't buy them like that.
