Took the 03A4 repro out for 10 rnds downrange this morning. 30 deg.
SR1 target has two groups on it. First group of 6 at 1 to 2 in the 9 ring. Scope correction and final 4 shots are in the 10 at 3 to 6. Life is good.

Still missing a Smith corona O3A3 I had, was an Excellent shooter, not nearly as nice as yours.

I understand that there have been a few SC 03A3s for sale at the CMP stores lately along with a bunch of Remingtons.
I enjoy introducing youngsters, at my range, to the 03, 03A3 and 03A4. After they get past the fact that there is a recoil they all seem to want one.

What is the model number of that rear target site?

57 SMF I think. Looks like the S is double stamped so it's hard to tell.

Was it once common practice to drill holes in receivers and put target sights on '03's? I have a WWII Remington '03 that had a Williams rear sight added. Stupid me sold the sight...
