    "...But they would never find anything to beat the old Springfield ...the long sleek streamline, very slim but with potent bulges, all in the just exactly right places to give it that pugnaciously forward-leaning, eager look that marked the Springfield. Beside it, the M1 looked like a fat old man puffing with a lack of training...the two most beautiful things made in America were the ax-handle and the clipper ship? ...they should have added one more thing: The Springfield '03 rifle..."

    He's been trying to sell it for a bit at $3K. I sent him a pic request as that's a pretty good deal. Darn you Phil, now I'll have to buy a M40A1.

          Not ALL of them ... it looks like 1838 made it out into the field and never received the USO mod... while its brother 1837 stayed home and did get the mod??

          The scopes were modified during servicing, and the scopes were not kept together by serial numbers. Not all scopes were serviced by USO, and of those that were, not all received the modification (from what I understand).

          I was just pointing out that the two consecutive serial numbers being auctioned as a set soon...has one that does not have the USO mod. I'm courious to see what the pair sells for, I will take a shot.

        I received the pictures. My wallet has taken a beating the last few weeks. I may just stick with the T-10 and get that commercial smear redone my McMillan for the less expensive way out for now. I reserve the right to change my mind, frequently...

        ETA - Looks like Reese3303 did an I'll Take It.

          I couldn't help myself.

          I already have one (serial # 3025) but will be selling. It was cerakoted and I want one with an original black finish.

                Is that not just Krylon paint which can be wiped off with acetone?

            • #10
              The scope was professionally duracoated tactical coyote brown. Everything else is krylon...

                Definitely a sexy AF build!

                But that tan/brown duracoat though... Just hurts a bit inside thinking about it. Similar to an A1 build posted here where the smith (Raven?) gave the metal parts and MST-100 the "weathered" look by tactically applying sandpaper and elbow grease to them at the owner's request. Ouch...

              I agree that’s why I went after the one on the hide.
              I’ll be using it to hunt so it’ll end up getting worn.
              Will be posting my duracoated one for sale next week.
              Have papers and tool kit just no box.

                Scope came in today. The markings are different but I assume thats to be expected from batch to batch. The heigh of sidewall space where vernier markings and yardage marking are is taller. And the clicks feel different.
                Next step is sighting this thing in.......again........

                  Sure. Let me know if you'd like to see anything in particular.
                  Another give away is the divider vertical marking has void space between the top of line and o-ring. Where as the older scope does not.

                  @Skunk

                  Could you provide a good tutorial on how to properly remove/reset the elevation screw if this is some sort of error in manufacture.

                  Now Ill have to check mine when I get home.

                  Now that I think about it...saying the knob was not held down properly may be incorrect. It could be the case, but it could also just be the way the threads between the coarse/bdc knob and the differential screw line up.

                  To check, you would loosen the set screw on the coarse/bdc elevation knob. Then, while pinching the knob down to the scope (thumb on top keeping knob pushed downward) back out the center screw, as if you are raising the point of impact. Back screw all the way out. When the screw backs out of the differential screw (piece hidden between the coarse and fine elevation adjustments) you may feel the main knob snap downward. This will only happen if there was a whole turn/thread of the center screw between the bdc and differential.

                  Kinda hard to explain in type.

                  It's really not a big deal as long as your bdc isn't rocking all over the place while set on "10." And, you'll lose your zero by checking this....

                Check the reticles as well. I've found at least 3 variaitons in the US Optic scopes.

                  I'm curious if Capthook has seen others, but so far I've seen pointed posts, then thick squared posts (more or less like the Unertls), then really thin squared posts. (A couple of the photos are borrowed. I hope the original owners don't mind.)
