Springfield 1903

How would I go about figuring the value of this weapon? I have had it for about 20 years and it just sits in my closet, once a year I remove it and oil it and put it back, I do know my Grandfather brought it back from Europe after the war.

Best I could suggest would be to check gunbroker, even there pricing seems to be all over the place.

I'm sure others that know more about 1903's will chime in.

If it were me, I'd just keep on oiling it up and hang onto it. Maybe take it out every once in awhile.

This has a high ser# as shown in attached photo, also the barrel tip by the front sight is showing a US mark with exploding bomb along with the letters S A, my understanding of the 5-42 stamp is a rework of the rifle in 1942

It is a drop dead gorgeous rifle, it belongs in a museum. I have had people tell me it is only worth $300.00 to as high as $2500.00 but I do feel the rifle is worth much more as far as semimetal value goes because of how long I have had it and also where it came from. However it is the only rifle I have left. I suppose I could hang over the fire place J I just want to get an idea of its value before I do anything with it.
