I was wondering if you fine folks could help me. I am looking at purchasing a M1903A3 and have found one is reasonable condition. It has the usual dings and scratchs on the stock but the metal is in really good condition. First off, I know nothing about these rifles but I know about firearms in general. The bore is a mirror and has strong rifling. Judging by the condition of the receiver it looks like it is in relative good shape. The date on the barrel is 3-43 and has the usual flaming cannon ball. The price is $540. Does the price seem fair? What should I look out for and what are some of the more desireable things about the M1903A3 as far as collectabiluity of the rifle.
