    I bought it locally from a LEO here in Nashville. Got it so my son could practice his ROTC rifle drills. We haven't shot it, yet; no clips.

    You used to be able to buy M1903 Drill Rifles from CMP. They're around $75, I think, if available.

    Very nice.
    How's the muzzle, and TE?
    Trigger group lockup in the stock (tight?)?
    Those Winny's tend to be prized more.

    Muzzle looks good, trigger group is tightly in... but pardon my ignorance, what is TE?

    Sorry, TE= Throat Erosion.
    Service Grade would be <=5 typ.
    It's something you would gage, unless it was tagged.
    You may want to baby that Winny during drill practice!:D
