I can't find one with the usual suspects, 98s are easy to find but no Springfields. I have a customer that is in need of one. Anybody out there have one or know someone that does?

We have. They don't have any and they aren't going to do any until a large order from Brownells, Midway or such. Hell, they are way behind on their muzzle brake orders.

Is he a Gunsmith shop or private individual?

I found him. Thanks I'll have my customer call him and keep you posted.

Thanks for posting this as I had never heard of them before. I've got an old sporterized M1903 that cries out for this modification!
I'm going to call Brownells and see if I can get myself on a contact list for when they become available.

I seem to recall that a Model 70 bolt shroud and side swing safety can be adapted to a Springfield 1903 with minor modification. Although not a Gentry or a Zufall, it might be worth exploring and would certainly be stylistically compatible with the 1903.

Ed Lapour's got about the best 3-pos safety in the business. I have not heard or read a bad review of his stuff. Your customer should not be unhappy with it.
