Default M1903a2

A friend of mine just told me about a rifle he inherited. I have never seen one actually marked A2. I understand this one was at some point put in a stock after being used as a sub caliber device, but what are they roughly valued at?

Participating in a gun buyback program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids.

I WAS the proud owner of 45+ 100% A+ ratings on the old itrader system.

Default 1903-a2

Wes,
Tom Taylor (PH68) picked up one of these at the South Store last year. Reach out to him as he may have a good feel for what you have.

I know a friend bought one and paid good money for it. But this was a few years ago.

The way the M1903 market has been declining, I really don't know what they are worth right now. It seems a lot of the collector M1903 prices have really went down the last few years.

A dedicated 1903 collector might place more value on a 1903A2 marked rifle if he wanted to complete his collection. The average 1903 buyer probably not. It's all about the audience.

I was unaware that 1903 prices were declining. My impression is that prices for military bolt rifles have been going up significantly for the last few years. The prices at CMP are certainly high and I have observed some impressive bids at real auctions. Saw a so-so 1903 with a green bore, polished metal and mixed parts go for a $700 bid (plus 16%) recently. Good Shooting. ...

Shooter M1903 prices haven't declined but collectible m1903 prices have been. For example National matches, sporters, NRA, and original rifles have all went down over the 20yrs Ive followed them. Some have went down a substantial price.

Some of the snipers have went up, but it seems other than shooter grade m1903s, there isn't a huge demand for some of the rare M1903s.
