03A3 to 03A4 Conversion

I'm the proud owner of a Remington 1903-A3 National Match rifle. I am planning to convert it to a "semi A4" model. I have already purchased the full walnut "C" stock with fore ends. As stated it is the National Match barrel with 4 lands and the proper armorers markings. I would prefer if at all possible not having to "re-shape" the bolt handle. My question is the proper scope, rings, mount to bring this weapon up to modern standards for long range shooting; hence the semi A4 designation.

I have been looking at the Bushnell 3200 series scopes with knobs for adjustment of windage and elevation. I would love to have a much more expensive scope but can't justify the cost vs. the usage.

So all that said I would appreciate your professional expertise.

Hi,

I would honestly recommend keeping your 03A3 close to original condition for both historical and economic reasons. It will cost less and be easier to produce a 1/2 MOA rifle on a Remington, and you won't effectively destroy part of history in the process.

But to do what you want to do, a place like Brownells should have a variety of bases that will fit your receiver. At that point, you can select any of the high quality rings and scopes that have been discussed in the Part II article stickied in this forum.

For a budget scope, look at the Burris, Bushnell, or a used Leupold.

Thanks for the honesty.....I had considered both and now I will keep the 03-A3 original. With iron sights it is dead on at 100 yds....just don't make them like that anymore IMO.

I'll start building up something different possibly starting with a .300 WinMag.
