I have acquired a Santa Fe 1903A3 complete receiver with bolt, trigger guard and floor plate. A friend has offered me a 1903 barrel which appears to have never been mounted on a receiver. They screw together nicely all but the last 1/8 of a turn. The bolt will not close so I am assuming that the barrel is short chambered. I suppose if I can get a stock and the furniture with it, I can at least make a shooter out of it for some fun, although there would be no particular collector value. I thought since there is no particular collector value I might mount a scope on the Santa Fe for my old eyes to enjoy. Any opinions or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks guys..............

I got out the barrel vice and installed it tonight. It went fine and the bolt closes nicely. I have two other bolts so I can try them if the headspace is an issue. Thanks for you interest. Now all I need is a stock............. Catch
