U.S. Rifle M1903a3 “03-A3” to 500yds: Practical Accuracy

Practical Accuracy scoreboard now on Patreon! ?

The U.S. M1903A3 was an improvement over the M1903 rifle with a rear aperture sight that was faster to produce during wartime. The “re-chambered Mauser” was a common sight in the Pacific Theater even up till the 70’s when the U.S. Navy finally retired them.

Since it’s employment, the M1903A3 has been a crowd favorite at CMP / NRA service rifle matches for it’s excellent sighting system, but how does it do on our field?

Why does Henry not prefer the front sight? Find out for yourselves.
