    They're not making any new ones. Maybe there's a bunch in some warehouse somewhere. I ain't selling sh*t unless I need the money.
    BTW, I bought a minty 1903 at an Eastern Arms Collectors Assoc. monthly meeting at the VFW hall in Farmingdale in the mid-1970s(?). ~$90

    agreed. hand select is a crap shoot too

The 03A3 is the better of the two, with a like new barrel dated 4-44, nice parkerizing and a clean stock. The 03A3 also cost me more at $900 with the M1903 $730 out the door.
    Beautiful..
    One day I'll get the CMP cosmoline off of mine.

    Check oldguns.net
    They have them for around $900-1000, and their descriptions are accurate. I've bought a Carbine, 1903A3, and a Krag from them. Good guys to deal with.

    thanks it’s a great gun. As for classic ive bought a few from them never been disappointed. I just think they usually price at the higher end of retail. And almost like CMP it’s luck of the draw. US ww1/2 milsurps are not going to ever go down in price so don’t wait too long.
    Great collection. I'm missing the 1917, to complete my collection

    BTW.... even if they had them in stock you wouldn't be able to get one. Classic has stopped selling to NY, NJ & CA "at this time"...
    Always had good experiences with the previous and current owners. Guess if you live in a commie state you're screwed

    For the same price or maybe lower I’d try to find one on gunbroker or a gun show. That way you can be thorough in your inspection. Just checking gunbroker prices they seem to have jumped lately. I bought mine probably 2 years ago and prices were below 1k for a nice one. I think I got my 43 dated Remington for 650.
    That was a great price.. not a steal but a great deal

    Yes, I know. I was just curios what people thought of Classic and/or perhaps purchased one of these rifles in the past. They sell out almost immediately.
