Springfield 1903 mk1
 
There is one available near me. I don't know much about it other than a rough build date and a few pics. What do these go for?

If that is the rifle I would offer $700.00 and work from there. It looks nice,how is the barrel?

1903 Mk 1
 
From the 2 pics, that looks like a re barreled rifle- the rear sight base is of the later type. The bolt looks like a replacement a3 bolt and the stock should be a grasping groove stock with a relieved / lowered cut for the Mk1 ejection port.
Hopefully the barrel has good numbers.
As far as price, everything is going for crazy $ these days, but if you're looking for a correct rifle, that's not it. It may be a good shooter with the later barrel, depending on the barrel quality. Personally if it was more than $700 I would pass.
Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the replies.

I am trying to get more info as this is all I have to go off of. I requested more pics. It's a few hours away from me or I would go see it in person.

I am not looking for a correct gun. This just fits my ww1 collection hole.

I will have to look up the stock and bolt differences.

It is going to depend on the individual rifle. The one pictured is in a (later) C stock, so that works both ways. Nice looking rifle. Generally, Mk 1 rifles do not bring much more than comparable 1903s. Rough estimate around here, $700-800 depending on bore and other features. Good Shooting. ... Addendum: when I see a rifle like the one pictured (priced right), I am tempted to buy it for the C stock, which has (depending) considerable value. Put the Mk1 back into a proper Mk1 stock and make good use of the C stock in a USMC 1941 replica or whatever.....

Other than the receiver there is nothing about that rifle that fits WW1 and the sn# showin is 1919-20 mfg.
