    I've got one that is in very good shape withe a barrel date of 8/44 and the serial number gives it a manufacture date sometime in 1942.
    The wood is gogeous, no corrosion, original leather sling, original finish is still in great shape. There is a little wear, but it is very minor.
    I inherited this from my grandfather and was kinda curious how much they are worth.

    I don't think I ever want to sell it, but you never know. There are lots of purdy Garands out there.

    CMP currently sells them for around $450-500. I bought one at a gunshow a few years ago for about $325. Most of them I see for sale are in the $700 range.

    CMP is out of the 03A3's so thats the reason why people are getting more money for theirs. But if its in real nice shape you could get a good deal of $$$$

    Thanks folks.
    One last question on mil-surp accuracy.
    How does it compare to other mil-surps? On par with a Mauser (seeing as its a Mauser action) Close to Swiss levels?

    My 03A3

    Remington with a 2-groove 9/43 barrel shoots MOA.

    So does mine, with a 10/43 barrel. I prefer my Springfield over a Garand.

    To me it's still a "bench mark" rifle, by which I judge all others.

    As good as any other milsurp and better than most.
    Cost aside, I wouldn't trade my 03A3 for anything.

    I got one in 1959 or 1960 for $9.95 through the NRA. They are as accurate as any milsurp I've shot.
