Externally, the Wm. Malcolm M73G4 is the spitting image of the original. Internally, this scope is far superior due to the vast improvements in modern optics. Additionally, the M73G4 offers more windage and elevation adjustment than the original, with a total of at least 60 MOA adjustment from optical center. We also offer a mount for the M1903A4 rifle.
Hi-Lux has totally re-engineered this scope's optical design from the inside out, maximizing the image clarity and light transmission. Our goal was to bring to the Vintage Sniper Rifle competition shooter a top quality scope that surpasses the quality of the WWII originals used on the M1903 sniper rifles.M73G4 Rifle Scope Manual [download]
To fulfill the need for WWII sniper rifles, the U.S. Army adopted the M1903A4 as the first standardized U.S. sniper rifle in 1942. This version of the Remington M1903A3 came without a rear sight, and had been fitted with a 3/4-inch Weaver 330C 2.5x riflescope, designated the M73B1. It was mounted with a one-piece base and rings produced by Redfield. In total, 29,964 M73B1 scopes were produced.
I replaced an original Weaver 330 scope from 12/41 on my Remington 241 with your replica and it’s perfect! Thanks!
A superb and bright reproduction optic with modern, coated glass.
Fit my original 1903A4 with original base (right off the rack of RIA and into a closet).
As soon as I got it zeroed in I was hitting CONSISTENTLY right in the middle on a HANGING 3 foot long strip metal, 3 inches in width using a 1903a3 Remington shooting a 150 grain bullet.
It was easy to adjust the windage, and elevation.
Also the optics are very clear.
have not used the rifle yet but the scope looks great on it. bill segal
I didn’t want to drill and tap my 03A3 receiver, so I bought a S&K no drill mount, some rings and reducers, and the Hi-Lux scope. It’s fantastic. No, I don’t have an A4, but I have a really cool A3! Original looking scope with modern optics.... buy one!
