What is the value of a 1903 springfield armory rifle serial number 969018?
This serial number is from 1929. The rifles value depends on
many things..bore wear, muzzle wear, throat erosion, stock
condition, does it have any special paperwork as to previous
ownership, are all the numbers matching, is it a National Match
rifle and the list goes on from there. Market value on a post WW1
1903 Springfield will start at about $200.00 and go up from there.
Take it to a few local gun shops and ask them to give you an
aproximate valve on it. But don't let someone talk you out of it
until you are comfortable with the value of the rifle, some sell
for as much as $3500.00 if everything is in its favor. Rifles
manufactured prior to or during WW1 are of greater quality and
value and should bring $400 and up depending on condition and care
during the past 90+ years. If you think you have an heirloom,
disassemble and examine for rust, the worst enemy off firarms.
