I have a 1903A3 sporter rifle and there is two holes for scope mounts it looks like, but Turners didn't carry something to mount a scope. Anyone know where I can order one?

I would try typing in "1903a3 scope mount" in google, I just tried it and came up with several results.

I can't believe I didn't do that. Thanks for reminding me. I tried ebay, but didn't see anything. I'll do that now and get what I need.

I found 3 designs, one is by Redfield, Leupold, and S&K, and another seems to be for the military version. I wish I could see a picture of the bottom to make sure it will fit mine. I suppose all non-military sporters should be the same. Mine is rounded on the front of the receiver and flat on the rear. Does that sound right? I don't have any sights on the receiver or the barrel.

Appraise it before you do anything. Don't learn the hard way.

I read a review on one of them, but didn't see others. I'll ask on the 1903a3 forum and see if anyone chimes in.
