Default Online Auction Rpt. (03A3) $1723.00

Nice rifle and I would guess the value of the sling at 150.00 and the bayonet/scabbard at 400.00+ so this brings the "actual" gavel price of this rifle down to around 1170.00, so less of a surprise then one might think at first glance.

Jack's excellent pictures, but damn...thats a pile for an A3. There certainly is a lot of junk out there to compliment it.

Looks like a pristine overhaul rifle. Very nice. Jack follows a simple recipe for getting top dollar:

1. Quality photos (composition and content)
2. Excellent feedback
3. Accurate descriptions

I've been following Jack the Dogs auctions, as much as I can, and do admit he seems to command top dollar a majority of the time. He does have a good recipe for success, not to mention, he seems to find high end quality firearms.

Allen,

Seasons' Greetings!

I see no evidence of overhaul.

Happy New Year!

Season Greetings to you too!

Not to detract too far from the OP, but I was under the impression that the OG stamp on the butt indicated an overhaul at Odgen.

What does the OG signify? (inspection only?)

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure the OG stamp means it was inspected and did not require any overhaul...in this specimens case

Seasons' Greetings!

The O G is just a re-inspection stamp. I have seen similar stamps from other arsenals on new unissued M'03-A3's. I suspect that the stamps were applied at the time the rifles were sold by the DCM. When the rifles were first offered for sale, the DCM guaranteed that the rifles were in serviceable condition and charged accordingly. And in order to do that, the rifles had to be inspected before shipment. And the inspection cost $$$. Later on, the DCM just sold the rifles as being in unserviceable condition, which allowed them to terminate the inspections and lower the price.

My 2c worth. Happy New Year!

J.B.

I've got two that are in similar shape...one with the unboxed "OG" stamp and one without.

The OP rifle has a "5" stamped into the stock, just behind the trigger. Neither of mine has that cartouche.
Anyone know what that refers to?
