Nice looking '03 Springfield. Looks like it's unmolested, too! Yes, it should hold 2 moa no sweat, better if there isn't too much erosion at the muzzle.

I missed the question back in September and apologize for the delayed response. I used the Fulton Armory railed handguard: LINK

I also got the railed handguard for the M1 Carbine and fit a red dot.

I did not find any pictures in time to edit so here it is....
The only difference is that the scope has been moved back to the align with the rear of the rail.

I have shot an original and they are way cool to shoot. That long ass rifle makes the 30.06 like a pellet gun. I say buy it and tell your wife I said it was OK.

I remember when Woolworth's had 1917s for $150.00 in really nice condition. $1895.00 is.................shocking.

Oh yeah, the price is steep, but in my mind the re-work you get from Milltech is likely worth the money.

Same with the Mausers; I think you used to could buy them for ~$200 in the NRA magazine.

My .585 Hubel was built on a M1917 action.. LOVE the strength and the smoothness of a well tuned M1917... truly a thing of beauty when worked right..

First deer was shot in WV with a 1917. It was the first centerfire rifle I ever shot. Deal was (from my Dad) "if you shoot it 3 times and have less than a 3" group, you get to carry it hunting tomorrow." I shot it three times with BARELY a 3 inch group. I "got" to carry it all day the next day. I ended up with a spike fork at dusk, while he carried his Model 94 30-30.

I was one tired 12 year old.

He got it for helping to clean out an old lady's attic in the early 70's. She charged him $20 for it when he found it in the attic. 100% original.

Someday it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

Not at all difficult. If you have a scope mounting kit with levels, I would use it to install the handguard.

There are two brackets with 4 bolts/screws that clamp it to the barrel. It lines up easily but just to ensure that it is level, I would use the scope levels.

So, it's not difficult to install but may be a little tedious.

The railed handguard for the M1 carbine is similar but easier to install.

I forgot to mention before that I also have a 1895 Chilean Mouser in 7x57 that has to be my favorite to shoot (tie with K31). I need to load some ammo for it...

It is one of those from Ludwig Loewe and is a real beauty. The long barrel with with a little heft practically eliminates recoil and the 7mm round is a flat shooter. Several years ago, I was ringing steel at 300y (ok, more like 280) with the notch and blade sights.

A buddy of mine has a M1903 Springfield, and an M1 Garand. Both of those guns are a treat to shoot when he brings them to our range trips and lets me have a go.
