Classic Bolt Rifles, Round Two
Readers Blum, Russell, Grant, Brewer, Jaruk, and others have things to add to our December report. Also, readers help readers with problems aired in Firing Line. And rifles as walking sticks.
Just a comment on your review of the 1903A3 Springfield rifle. I fully understand you test the rifles as you buy them, and thats the way it should be. And I agree about the jolt the 1903A3 gives you. Anyone who wants either a 1903 or 1903A3 as a shooter would be well served to either find one with the full pistol grip C stock as opposed to the straight stock you tested, or the semi-pistol grip (Warthog stock) that many are found with.
