Guns > CMP: Only 1000 1903a3 Springfields Left

VIa The High Road, an email from the Civilian Marksmanship Program:

"M1903A3 REMINGTON GETTING LOW. The CMP is down to the last 1,000 M1903A3 Remington rifles. At past rate of sales, we expect that these will not last more than a few months."

Now that the word out, they may go faster. Once they're gone, prices on the secondary market will go up. If you want a 1903a3, now's the time. There are still "several thousand" of the non-A3 1903s left, but they're apparently of lower quality. If you want a shooter rather than a collectable, you'll want the A3 because of the better sights.

I've heard this before. They always seem to find new ones somewhere.

I've heard it on the grapevine before, but never from the horse's mouth. If a person wants one, I think this is the time to get it.

SoCal gun nuts can come to the CMP shoot in Nov and buy 03s and Garands, Nov 5-9. It's at Camp Pendleton (Oceanside)
