Hello experts. I'm looking for help in determining an approximate value for an original '03A3, in very good to excellent condition, serial number 85x,xxx. In addition, this gun comes with a complete .22 conversion kit. Any info on the history of this gun's conversion kit would be much appreciated.

    i have a 1903a3 that has feed problems. ill load it and the rounds will just sit at the bottem where the bolt cant pick them up and chamber. im thinking this is just a worn out spring?? could it be something else? the last time i fired it it worked fine. where could i get a replacement part??

    Unless you have high quality digital photos, it would be difficult to evaluate your rifle without seeing it. It's value in the $100-800 range, depending upon originality, condition, and alterations. Your best bet is to find a collector at a local gun club or show; you may want to check out the Springfield forums at www.jouster.com or www.gunandknife.com. Neal

    The serial number given would indicate the rifle is a 1903, not a '03A3.

    Thank you both for the information. Neal, I took a quick look at the sites you mentioned...seems like I have a fair amount of reading/education ahead of me! Thanks again.
