    Hello,

    I have a Springfield Model 1903 A2. What's odd is the Blue Book doesn't cover the A2 model, it goes from A1 straight to A3. The serial number match that of a 1903. It has been sporterized, drilled for scope mounts. The A2 looks hand stamped and was done at a later date. Anyone have any information on this rifle and what its value would be?

    Thanks,

    Warthog

    Pictures coming today

    If its been sporterized its worth what a run of the mill used -06 is worth about $300-350.00. virtually no collectors value.

    Really sucks when good guns happen to bad people. I have seen so many atrocities over the last few years. Turns your stomach to see what people will do to a perfectly good firearm in the name of cool or even worse tacti-cool.

    Most of you are too young to remember the 50's and 60's. These mil surps cost $15-25 and it was the affordable way to have a deer rifle. Many were done in the garage with a hack saw and are crude but many were done by craftsmen and are works of art.
