Your stock looks like a smith corona stock.

Depending on condition of stock, muzzle wear and throat erosion, if rifle fully functions, I'd say $600 to $800 dollars. I'd have to see detailed pics of all the various parts because the majority of these rifles have been rebuilt with Remington parts. It very well may be a typical mixmaster. Nothing wrong with that.

I got one of the SC 03A3 rifles the CMP was selling last November, and mine looks pretty much identical to yours. The CMP price was $500, plus shipping, but outside the CMP, the retail price generally goes up at least $100.

You can no longer use the CMP price in comparison with 1903A3 and 1903 rifles given that the CMP does not have anymore and probably won't ever have more. The CMP price was undervalued when they sold them at $500. If it's original park, original barrel, with a Smith Corona stock, I'd put it upwards of $750-$800. You can't even buy Smith-Corona 1903A3 rifles on Gunbroker anymore for under $600. They are getting harder to find.
