I would love to have one of those. New barrel and really nice wood.

I paid $14.50 for my brand new o3a3. I have four new barrels that my Dad paid $1.50 each for. (DCM) (around 1960)

Kinda tempting. If it was 100 cheaper it would be better.

I guess you will get a mix-master that has been re-parked. Will prolly shoot fine.

With FFL fees you will be around $ 825.00 - $850.00 for a 1903a3 with a commercial stock.
There are many all USGI 1903a3's out there in very good condition in the $650.00 dollar range

It's a little on the high end....but you could shoot and enjoy for a couple years as the inflation on these rifles catches up. You will never lose much if any $ on it. I paid the same or a touch more for an un-issued one. Have never regretted it. ;)

Heres one I bought not long ago for much, much, less. Pics where taken before I had a chance to clean it up. Not that it needed much;) Also came with oiler and original leather sling . Deals are out there especially now as people are needing money

That is a nice-looking rifle, although the Type C stock is not authentic.

By the way, I have two 03A3s, a Remington purchased for around $14.50 in the late '50s or early '60s and a Smith-Corona purchased in the late '80s -- for about 10 or 12 times that price. Both are in excellent shape, but rebuilt.

Vern ,if you are refering to my rifle I believe a a pinned FJA stock is correct for a early Remington 1903a3
Yes this is a rebuilt rifle. All Remington parts except for the bolt. I bought it from a fellow who bought it in the late 1950's for around $19.00
It has been fired very little since the rebuild

I was referring to the rifle for sale (in the illustration.) A few early 03A3s did have C-type stocks and some had S-type stocks (my Remington has an S-type stock), but the majority had scant stocks -- which came about when stock blanks cut for the type-S stock and held in storage were shaped on a profile lathe with a C-Type master.

They are "tack drivers"
