    Value depends on how much of the gun is orginal. The barrel has been replaced apparently with a Segley "USMC" marked barrel; how about the stock etc?

    If it is still all military configuration in very good condition it is worth a minimum of $300 or so for parts. So many of these guns were cobbled together with a mish mash of parts it is hard to put a price on these without a close look.

    Don't know of ANY three groove barrels. M1903A3's were fitted with TWO groove barrels manufactured by Remington, but NONE were installed at the ****nals and armories onto Mk I, or other 1903 receivers.
    I'd be interested in knowing how you attribute USMC provenance to this rifle. By and large, the Corps didn't utilize the Mk I's. Sounds like what you've got is a mixmaster sporting rifle, and as such, I buy them anywhere between $150-$250, depending on the competency of the work performed, and condition.
    It'd be REALLY tough to put a value on this piece without a much better detailed description, as well as photos, if possible.
