Shamu, good info to know when looking for magazines.  Thanks
Your sporter is very similar to the mountaineer. 
I need to put a scope on mine.

Nice! Never had to use a "just in case" site, but feel the need for one! "Just in case...!"

Goosic... beautiful! Front ivory bead sight. With a scope mounted, does this rifle have a "manual" rear site to utilize it? I ask because I made a "scout" rifle out of an old No4 and kept the front site for looks but removed the rear in lieu of a scope. Thanks!

Remember you will probably have to do a little "tweaking" with non-matching magazines. They were serial number matched to the individual rifle for just that reason.

I believe all the Golden State guns ere no4's not No1's?
If so any No4 or No5 magazine should fit except as mentioned.
This is my No5 "Goobermint Model Sporter" with a 5-round Santa Fe mag.

The Santa Fe division of Golden State Arms converted various milsurp rifles to sporters from the 50's to the late 60's. Your rifle would fall into the mid 50's category of manufacture from the serial number. 
There is a five round Santa Fe magazine on eBay right now too.

I have had for about 20 years what I believe is the same rifle as you
SANTA FE MOUNTAINEER
GOLDEN STATE ARMS CORP. PASADENA CALIF
303BR
3779

Really wish I could date the year of manufacture. 
Haven't been able to find any magazines at the gun shows. 
Haven't been able to locate any info regarding the serial number. 
Bummer

Try the "Prvi Partizan" commercial it's good stuff usually available at gunshows & reasonably priced. The brass is reloadable too.
