Hey Guys,

I lost the link to the GB auction but it ended yesterday. I was eyeballing it and almost bid, It was a WW2 USMC 1903A1 recreation with a 10X Unertl and the seller stated it had a 1943 USMC marked barrel. I dont know enough about these but I was tempted. If I remember right it was up for auction the week before with a reserve somewhere above $1,900.00 because it got to that and didnt sell. It just sold yesterday for $1,625.00 without a reserve. What would you guys have paid?

Sorry for the bad pics but its all I have.

You probably can not build on for that amount of money. That was probably a good deal. The stock, if not a restamp, is pretty valuable.

Those USMC marked barrels by Sedsley?sp?, were of inferior quality. As I recall, they were surplused and not used.
the sedgley barrels were used by the marines and there is a way to tell if it was a marine rebuild or not. The general consenses is that only the early marked sedgley barrels no later than 1942 were ever used by the marines.
here is a picture of my usmc reworked 1903 with a barrel date of 8-41
