  • 1903 Springfield sight

    I have a 1903 that is in excellent shape with the exception of the ladder sight slider. The screw knob is bent. Anyone know where I might find a source for one?

    Thanks.

    That's the only one I could think of right now. The other vendors I used for 1903 parts are no longer in business.

      Thank-you sir. I found what I needed at Numrich for just a couple of dollars.

        You might want to look for the USMC rear sight with the number 10 peep also has a higher, thicker front sight. Repros are around as originals are difficult to locate. Not really expensive and has the advantage of being zero in at 200 yards with the leaf down (second photo) as compared to the old 547 yards with the standard leaf

            those grasping groves on your stock were not made by the factory, factory grooves are larger at the rear

              Yep those grasping grooves are not kosher, but about one of the best attempts I have seen so far; and need some work by a pro, with an authentic stock nearby to copy.
