Is that refurb or brand new? Looks neat to say the least. I'll take 2.

From AIM's webpage

US model M1903A4 Springfield bolt action 30.06 Rifles. These Rifles are built using original Remington-made World War II M1903A3 actions and turned-down bolts. These fine Rifles feature newly manufactured 4-groove barrels identical to the originals. Each receiver is carefully drilled and tapped using replicas of the original "Redfield" rings and mounts and an exact copy of the M73B1 scope, used on the 1st model M1903A4's. Each barreled action has the original military parkerized finish with beautiful walnut stock furniture, again, identical to the originals.
Each includes a replica of the M1907 U.S. issued leather sling and OD Green canvas carrying case. Not just exceptional in looks and finish, each gun is made to hold to the accuracy standards of the U.S. Military during World War II. These Rifles are currently in very high demand and we have a limited supply, so order while you can!

Most of the reviews don't give it high marks.

These old rifles were not expect to give under MOA most are around MOA or a little over.

The photos on the Milsurp link are nice. The only question I had was regarding wood, one review said it was walnut stained hardwood and another reported it as walnut. Looks to me to be real walnut stock.

My bet is they're pretty good shooters so long as the scope holds up. I guess it's on my "eventual buy" list but for now the V93, SMLE and Kahr Mk40 are ahead of it.

Not, me, I like to actually shoot my rifles. If I blew my money on an actual A4, I'd never fire it.

The review says the stock isn't walnut - does anyone know for certain what it is? How the heck can a nearly $1K '03 be made with anything other than real walnut?
