Oops ! Sorry guys. Just pretend like I said 1903A1 :wink: .I noticed the M1903A1 10x Unertl (USMC) is not listed, that one I would rank at the top of the group, I think it was better than the A4 model.
Would anybody vote for it? I owned a Type 99 before and frankly was unimpressed.You are also forgetting the old 7.7mm Type 99 Arisaka sniper rifle.
1) A bloody fortune from me, at least. Well, I'd fork out $2500-3000...but not much more than that, I thinkKiwi said:Q#1, What would that fetch in Europe, the UK or the US ofA?
Q#2, would you shoot it if it was yours....even only once??
The way understand it, Mauser sold the rights of the 03 to Springfeild for several million dollars.I'd read that when the Mausers found out about the 1903 they took it to court and were awarded a dollar for every Springfield produced...
I don't think the 17 Enfeilds were as good as the 03Speaking of "our mausers" its too bad there was no ww2 P17 Enfield sniper rifle. Or a P14 for us.
