i owned one of these and seen them at gun shows for 800- 1200 dollars

i also found this story

Built by the Springfield Armory in the 20's and 30's for training purposes. It simulated the weight of the 30 caliber rifle, while consuming the much cheaper .22 ammunition. To keep the weight in line, Springfield used a 30 caliber barrel, underbored to .22, and in the process accidentally created an extremely accurate rifle. I got this one partially out of sentimental attachment. I was shooting my father's M2 at the age of 13 - when I was younger, I couldn't hold it up. M2's have become quite expensive in the last few years, with pristine examples bringing upwards of $1,000 these days. I got this one much cheaper ($500) because the stock had been refinished. Or so I thought... read on. Was offered $700 for it before I could get out the door of the gun show, but I bought it to shoot, not to make money on. This is a later M2, with the small peep sight on the rear. I'd love to find the larger peep sight, as this one doesn't really blank out the background. But, it shoots well, even if the clip doesn't feed correctly. Update - I have been able to trace the serial number on this particular M2, and it's origins explain the shiny stock which I had previously attributed to an ill advised refinish. This particular rifle began its service life at the US Coast Guard Academy, which tends to explain the shiny finish - put on for the cadets to agonize over. Firearm values vary greatly. Obviously condition has a lot to do with what a gun is worth (your original question was like saying "I have a Ford F-150, what's it worth?", but for collectible guns this apparent rule changes. For example, 1903 Bushmaster A4 in spite of it's original condition, say a broken stock with matching number and cartouche stamp is worth considerably more than one that has been repaired, even by a competent gunsmith. Shootable 1903's can fetch upwards of $1000 but getting one from the Civillian Marksmanship Program can reduce your cost without sacrificing quality. I think I paid around $500 for mine and it's mint, nearly museum quality. Basically all 1903's and Garands have been asenal reconditioned by the military at some point. They are utility rifles and most have seen a lot of use. Bottom line, if it's in rough shape but functional I'd leave it alone because any modifications you make will reduce the value. Also, be certain your 1903 falls in the safe range of serial numbers. Some rifles depending upon who made them (Rock Island Arsenal -vs- Springfield -vs- Remington) had problems with the tempering process, making the recievers brittle and unsafe to shoot high pressure loads like the 30-06. You can get more information from a book called "Hatcher's Notebook" by J.S. Hatcher. It has a lot of information on military firearms from this era and sells on amazon for about $20.

The value of ANY firearm is based on exact make, model and condition. Without knowing the condition of your Springfield, and what piece is missing, we really cannot make an accurate estimate of value. Your best bet would be to take the (unloaded) rifle to a gun show in your area, where a knowledgeable dealer or collector could give you an accurate worth- and maybe make you an offer (offer WILL be less than value). Please note that your rifle is a "low serial number" rifle, which has heat treatment issues, and should NOT be fired. Further information on low serial number Springfield's can be found at the website for the Dept. of Civilian Marksmanship.
