    I have two older military rifles that were left to me by my uncle,They seem to be in real good shape, But Im not really a military rifle collector.They both have ammo and accessories,I would like to know their approx (fair) value.

    The first gun is a US Rifle cal 30 Springfield Armory #143xx

    #2 is a US carbine 30 cal Inland Div #657xxx this rifle has a heat shield on it but I have the wood piece that goes on top and it has 3-30rnd &3-15rnd mags, and 2 extra stocks

    Blackman, I live here in Vancouver and I am a Garand enthusiast. I would love to look at your Garand to help you identify what you have. I sent you a PM.

    Depending on how many of the parts on that Garand are original, it could be worth a considerable amount, that is a very early serial number, made between July/August of 1939.

    I would really consider having it appraised to figure out it's exact value. Regardless of it's originality, your uncle left you some very nice weapons there.

    Hang on to the ammo. The 30.06 black tip WWII is armor piercing. The stock on the M1 carbine looks to be in much better shape then a military issue rifle. Unless the stock was changed at some point. Sorry I don't no much about M1 Garands.(?)

    Prices can run from $600 up past 2k. Condition and markings. A nice Garand averages around 7-800 bucks, at least to ones I see selling local.

    I'm no expert, but those look good enough to get appraised!

    Bore condition and original condition/parts are key

    The Garand bolt looks to be a replacement, it does not match the rifle's finish. But if the bore is good it could be a great shooter-grade rifle, say $600 to $800

    Carbines are going for premium prices right now as they are drying up. The stock has either been refinished or it's a commercial stock (IMO)
