I recently purchased a 1903 Mk 1 with really nice metal but the stock was from a 1903A3 (no finger grooves) and the action was really, really loose in it. I learned the CMP offered some walnut finger groove reproduction stocks (made by Boyds) so I bought one. I can highly recommend them, however they are pricey - $170. The rifle now shoots much smaller groups off a rest (1.5"@100 yards vs 3"@ 100 yards) with CMP ammo. Photos of the rifle in the new stock are attached.

Drop in fit except for the hand guard clips - the inletting required to install them is not done by Boyds. Only had to retighten the action screws every 5 shots for 25 shots before the action screws stayed tight and the rifle settled down group-wise.
