M1903?
 
I've been thinking about getting some WWII rifles lately. The m1903 looks like a beautiful weapon, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the average price for an original, not replica rifle would cost. And would I need to reload myself or is there still some decent surplus ammo around for cheap? Any help y'all would be really appreciated

Should be able to find a matching number 03 for around $800

Not an 03 Springfield, but IMHO, these were very good rifles- this is a good price, seller has good feedback, and there are 10 hrs to go on a no reserve auction.

Yes, there is still some 30-06 MILSURP, but it is getting scarce. The CMP has some Greek for sale- http://odcmp.com/Sales/ammo.htm

If you are looking for a 1903, be sure to read the caution on low serial number rifles from the CMP-

Ooh I almost forgot about the receiver hardness issue. Good input.

Thank you guys for the advice, I would have never known about those bolts. And the rifle itself, I was thinking I would have to pay a $1000 to $1300 dollars.

I'm actually waiting on word back from a guy that came by with a barrel and receiver. He either wants to have me build the gun or sell me the parts. Actually been about a week now. Kinda ridiculous.

The 1903A3 is a little less expensive. The 03A3 has better sights.:)

Now I need a 03A3 and a P17.:p

30.06 ammo aint that hard to come by,

what, specifically, were you seeking ?

quickdrawmcgraw 05-16-2012 04:23 PM

I was looking for a good bolt action, pre 60's.
