This looks like a straight rehash of the DML Springfield released with the Alan figure... and unfortunately, the Unertl scope was used pretty exclusively by the Marines and hence in the PTO only. Army ETO snipers used a Weaver scope. The Unertl scope was showcased in SPR, but not really accurate.well, i can finally make an e.t.o. sniper,whenis this baby due?
JTFazz said:Okay, I have made some modifications to the Springfield and repainted the scope and mount.
I want to thank the aptly nicknamed M1903 for his reference pics on the M1903A3 he sent me to help in making the weapon modifications.
It still has a few little things that are different from the A3, but they are beyond my skill to further modify.
In addition to the scope, which I scratch-built from styrene, the weapon mods are (illustrated in the photoshop modified DML image) shown in the bottom photo:
1. Elimination of the front sight (for scoped weapons)
2. Reshaping of the stock
3. Additional "wood" on the top receiver and removal of thus elimination of the leaf sight.
4. Filled notch from Alan scope
All that is left is some fine tuning of the paint job.
