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

    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.
