- "The F.L. Sporter .303 is a rebuilt military surplus rifle and a great option for medium to large game. If it needs some "scrubbing up" to make it like new again that can be a very satisfying project, and once you're done you will have a rifle that's great both for hunting and target practice. The bolt action is smooth, reliable, and easy to cycle quickly."
