Yesterday was my day off, so I took the 1928 dated 1903 that my grandfather gave me out to the range. On the third shot the magazine floor release broke and the floor plate dropped on the bench. There were no split cases, no gas blowby, and no signs of high pressure. It just broke. I am used to shooting Mauser's and Mosin's and have never had a problem with them. Is this common? The gun looked nearly unissued. I jut thought I shoud shoot it just once. Why does the good stuff alway break. Boo Hoo!
