    Default WTB: 1903A3 Springfield barrel vise and receiver wrench

    I need to change the barrel on my 1903 Springfield and cannot find a gunsmith in my area to do the job. I would like to buy a barrel vise and receiver wrench for a 1903A3 Springfield.

    It would probably be cheaper to send it away and have the barrel installed. You will also need the chamber reamer if installing a new barrel.

    Why would I need a chamber reamer? I have talked to a retaired police department armorer about changing the barrel and he did not mention anything about having to use a reamer on a 03A3. Unfortunately for me he has sold his barrel vise and receiver wrench. And do you know someone I could ship the rifle to?
