Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Sported Smith Corona 03A3 range report.

#1 Post by Calfed » Fri Sep 13, 2019 3:15 pm

A few years ago I bought a sported SC 03A3 with the thought of converting it to a CMP vintage sniper match 03A4. I never really followed up on the plan, but yesterday I took the SC out and shot it.

As you can see, the rifle has a Redfield rear sight and, interestingly, a 6 groove barrel. I pulled the #3 shot, but rifle grouped quite well at 100 yards with the target sight and Federal 150 gr Powrshok commercial ammo.

Thanks, Frederick!

This was a very early Smith Corona and had the early 6 groove barrel
