Anybody have any idea what a National Ordinance 1903A3 is worth? I'm thinking about selling mine even though its probably not worth much.

Do not listen to that link! That 1903 is worthless, and thus you should give it to me to rid yourself of such a burden!:D

we must have gratuitous gun porn my friend.

I've always read that NA '03s were only worth ~$300 tops. And I already posted it in another thread, but hey you can never whore your gun pics enough right? :D

The best pic I've got right now:

It really seems to depend on a lot of things. I've seen 03A3s anywhere from $350 up to $800 depending on condition, matching #'s, etc.

I suggest doing a lot of research if you want the full value.

03 's are great, do not buy a National Ordinance. I hate to bash something someone else might love, but National Ordinance never made an 03 Springfield. It is a parts gun and I wouldn't give them $150 for it. Most of them won't head space. I have seen quite a few that are unsafe to shoot. In no way is it a collectors item. For the price they are asking you would expect to buy a Smith Corona with the original blue - one that wasn't re-arseneled for the second War, something mint. I paid $325 for mine two years ago. It's a Springfield, re-arsenal with a 1944 barrel. It's not mint , buts its a shooter.

Well, I already have it. I bought it a while back without doing any research first :o

I need to get the headspace checked and start shooting it though, I'm tired of it collecting dust in the closet.
