    O/T 03-A3 Springfield's worth

    One of the fellows at our trap club has a 03-A3 Smith Corona Springfield that is cherry. He got it many years ago and it has only had two shots fired out of it in its life. Absolutly immaculate. Anybody have any idea of it value. I've heard between 1200-1500 but don't really know. thanks Dan

    Bought a scant stock Remington '03-A3 4-groove via CMP three years ago for $450.

    Bought a straight stocked Remington '03-A3 2-groove for $375 about the same time

    They shoot equally well.

    I'd say about $700 for a cherry Smith Corona. I've had opportunity to buy a cherry SC at a gunshow for about $700 that I passed on because I want my '03s to be shooters, so I don't mind the dinged stocks and non-matching numbers.

    If I bought the cherry gun - it'd be a safe queen and then what did I spend $700 for?

    Who made it? Is it a parts gun? Is it a field gun, sniper gun, match gun? There are a number of things to look at with those guns. The price will be from $400 to $5000. take it to a expert who knows these guns.

    I think I paid about $45.00 to Monkey Wards in 1965.

    JBrooks Yes I bought a bunch of guns like that . I still have 8 or 9 03-A3,s love to shoot them . I have bought them as low as $29.95 in the 70,s .

    You will not be buying any more like that for $45.00 bucks . now a clean 03-A3 of any make is around 500 bucks .
