Nice. The 03-A3 is just like the one I used to have before my house fire. Hey, I think the movie is Kelley's Heroes, and one of the guys goes up into the church tower and is using the 1917 Remington. Have you seen it?

That's not fair, more than 1 M1 Garard in a collection is forbidden! So put one in a box and send to the address I will IM you and you will be off the hook. Those pics bring back the memories. At one time or another I had an M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, Kar 98, SMLE, they all looked great in the gun rack. Once again I will have a Garand in the rack, just waiting for the extra cash. A very nice collection if you ask me.

Boy, the 03-A3 had quite the kick, unlike the M1 which tamed that .30-06 round really nice. That was the one I shot the most, a truly great rifle!

Oh, come on! What in the wide, wide world of sports is a goin on here? 2 M 1 A's? Now things are really getting out of hand. If you post a picture of your BAR and Thompson .45 sub I'm really gonna lose it.

Nope I traded the M1A .45 Thompsonn for a 10" reel to reel Sansui tape player and they took the M3A3 .45 grease gun away from me when I was getting on thee freedom bird. The Browning wouldn't fit in the duffel bag. So I have to make do with a Germasn .45. Sad eh?


Pura Vida

Very nice collection MJ1.

I have a 1943 Smith Corona 03A3 that I plan to get out on the 4th, along with a M1 43 Inland Carbine and a 42 Springfield M1 Garand. Still trying to add a 1917 and 1903 to the collection.

Have a good 4th of July everyone.
