whats my springfield armory model 1903 bolt action 30-06 rifle worth ? serial # is 1308962
Can you provide more detailed info? Those old rifles are very collectible.
I too have a "1903", made in 1907, #285393. Great gun!
But, I don't know the value, sorry.
hello,,springfield 1903 rifles can bring from 550 and go over 1000 for correct rifles in there original configurations ,,but they have to be with there original stocks and all hardware ,,rifles with serial numbers under 880,000 are said to be unsafe to fire modern high pressure ammo in because the receiver were said to not be properly heat treated ,,rifles with serial numbers over 880,000 will value a bit more to collectors but collectors still want untouched original examples for there collections ,,sporterized examples are valued much less than an original example by as much as sometimes 1/2 the value of the original configuration examples to collectors ,,i've seen sporterized examples with price tags of between 250-450 but there slow movers these days typically,,,
i recently sod an 03 for 850.00-by definatin it was a J.Segely Springfield Sporter-i only sold it this cheap due to the reciver was case hardened-not strong enough for modern ammo.
Attached a photo....
Not sure what I have here. Pretty sure it's a Springfield bolt action 30-06. My father got it when he left the service in wwII. I believe he built a new stock for it. I also have a big box of clips with 6 or 8 bullets in each clip, and cloth shoulder holsters holing several clips. I have no idea how to find out how much this is worth or how to go about selling it without getting into trouble. Any help would be appreciated.
This answer is for Steve (last of the tag-ons to this thread):
No, that is a US 1917 Enfield (made by Winchester, Remington, or Eddystone). It has been heavily modified, for hunting. It is PROBABLY still in 30-06, but that should be checked if you are unsure, as many were rechambered for more powerful cartridges.
If your clips are 5-round, they would have worked in this gun before the scope was mounted. If 8-round (and wrap about halfway up the case) they are for the M1 Garand, and could not have been used in this gun - though the cartridges themselves would work, if rifle is .30-06.
Yep. M1917. The rifle is likely worth about $200-300. If the sling is an original M1907, in good shape, it could be worth $100.
