Default Stripped 03 Receivers

What are the going prices for stripped 03 receivers. I may need one and am curious what is considered fair.

You should be able to find one for no more than $200, if you look enough. That is a non drill receiver in decent shape.

A few years ago, I was buying low numbers for $90 and highs for $120, at a gun show. The deals are out there.

Maybe buying a sporter, with an unmolested receiver, would be your best bet. Sell off the parts you don't need.

But I’d add you should pass on any Sporter that’s been reblued by a gunsmith. If your intent to to build a rifle into its “issued” condition then reblued Sporters, even if they are reparkerized, pretty much always look the worse. Now on the other hand, if you happen to come on to a nice Sporter then there’s absolutely nothing wrong with leaving it alone and enjoying it for what it is. Which was likely a conversion that was done by a WWII vet. Sporters have their place in the history of these rifles and they may deserve some respect, not destruction.
