This is a "Born Again Springfield" inspired by an article about a build of an old Springfield sporter rifle. After reading the article I was inspired to undertake my own build from this side of the pond. It took a few years before I found a rifle suitable for the build and then a few years after, to complete the rifle.

It's an early Springfield sporter with the original sporter custom stock refinished. A steel grip cap and red pachmyer recoil pad were custom fitted. The action was case colored and attached to a Douglas premium barrel. I had front and rear sights added even though I was scoping the rifle. The rifle has a Leopold VX-3 3.5-10x40mm with target turret. You can have a custom elevation turret made for your hand loads. This rifle is in 270 win caliber as a tribute to Jack O'Connor. It has only been fired during the build and has not seen any range or field use. PM me with any questions or request additional photos.

$3,200 shipped to your FFL.

Hopefully, this rifle finds a new home or inspires similar builds.

Beautiful rifle.... I bought Todd's 375 and it was super nice. I have no doubt this rifle is as nice as the ad says it is.

Kudos for including what appear to be a fine set of open sights in the build.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
