I was doing appraisals today for an upcoming estate sale, and all sorts of guy stuff kept coming out of storage, including this Springfield 03 Rifle kit by Majix Kits of Oceanside, CA, home of Camp Pendleton and your truly. Anyone ever heard of them?

You can, you still can: it's just a matter of size.

I put everything in its place in the box this morning an it seems to have all pieces.

Bob, could we have a close up of the box lid? Never seen the photo before, looks like a Marine with a match shooting jacket.

I have a couple of these in the boxes.  Springfield 03 amd M-1 Garand.  They came from my uncle who had them when he was a kid in the 50's.  Both have not been put together.  My uncle later served in the USMC.
