Just my $.02. You are not going to find mint Mk1 stock. I would not value that rifle at $2k. Sorry, at one thousand you are paying too much. Good luck, but understand the Mk1's are available. Not rare at all. It is the Pederson Device that is rare.

$1k for a nice correct , mk1 minus the stock seems reasonable. A mk1 stock will probably cost you 350 to 500 if I had to guess.

I understand when you say the Pederson Device is rare. There was one on GB recently listed for 32K. I have also read that rifles with correct Mark I parts including the trigger, sear, bolt, and cutoff parts represent 1% or less than the total still in existence. How can these features have no added value, or at least not command a premium to collectors?

They are an interesting variant of the 1903. But they aren't particularly rare.
A few seconds on the Google located this gem:
http://forums.thecmp.org/showthread....%2C000%20units.

So, 6-10% of 1903s are Mark Is.
Often the Mark ! specific parts were replaced, but they aren't necessarily hard to find. Stocks are available as well.
From what I have seen in private sales, just a Mark I receiver won't add much, if any to the value. If it has the correct stock, maybe a slight bump. Has all the Mark I parts, other parts reasonably correct? Maybe a few hundred more at most, and then only to someone who will pay it?

When CMP did the last big bolt action release (2011-2012?) the Mark Is had a separate part number, does anyone remember the price difference? I know it wasn't much, if at all.
Update: Found it:
http://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=145496
CMP sold them at the same prices as other comparable 1903s.

This is out dated, but about 2012/13, I purchased an all correct/original MkI from a friend for $1,100. I do not know what the fair market price was, then and did not research it. My friend is very good with 1903s. I inspected the rifle, well before I committed. Come to think of it....I've never fired the rifle.

ZvenoMan has this about right. Common Mark 1s do not generally bring any premium. I have some with all the right parts and they are an interesting variant. Took one apart several years ago to supply the receiver to a well known "restoration expert" in California--he thanked me by failing to ever pay for it. The stocks are worth a premium to someone who needs one. They are easily faked however and "often missed" as the shallow cut is not obvious unless you look for it. I bought a very nice 1903 WW2 rebuild rebuild recently and didn't spot the (sanded, but good) Mk 1 stock until I got it home. Good Shooting. .....

But it's on the internet. It must be true.

Seriously, those prices do not seem to be a summary of actual selling prices.
In no way am I knocking MK Is but they are unique and unusual, not rare.
