US Armament Corp - Does Anyone Know Anything About Them?
« on: December 15, 2020, 06:51:27 PM »
I am interested in getting a 1903A3 and am researching them.
I keep looking at gunbroker and of course they go from ~$600 to a couple of thousand dollars.
Some I see from time to time are from US Armament Corp; they are supposed to be rebuilt from surplus receivers with new stocks and barrels. Blah, blah, blah...
The special grade Garand I have from the CMP is basically the same concept, so I guess really, what's the difference?
I am not tied to the idea of having one that was "issued"; not sentimental about it at all.
Completely rebuilt is fine with me.
In fact, I think I prefer it.
I don't have any real reason to be too concerned, it's just that I have not heard of them before a couple of months ago.
Anyone with experience or knowledge of them that could set me at ease?
Thanks,
Greg

Never heard of the company but it seems like a solid rifle with a really good barrel.  I would risk $1000 on it. If you work up a good load with some 168 grain hallow point boat tails it should be a shooter.
I have come here to chew gum and teach riflemen the art of shooting one hole groups and I’m all out of bubblegum.

They partnered with Colt to bring back a reproduction of the 1903 Pocket Pistol.  From everything I've read, it was a faithful, reliable, high quality product.

OK, cool.
This all helps me be more comfortable with making a purchase from them.
Thanks all.

Well, snot.
Guess we aren't getting a Christmas bonus this year, so no '03 for me for a while.  :boohoo:
