I think $300-350 is a fair price on that rifle, but the market on those has been weird the last 5 years or so. If you find someone who like it, you could probably get around $450-550. Their value really depends on the quality of components, the gunsmith who put them together, and caliber.

I had that exact scope on my spoterized mauser. It finally fell apart after about 8 hunting seasons.

I'm guessing your 7mm is a 7x57 or there-abouts. The stock is nothing fancy but is done well enough. Depending upon the condition of the barrel (bore/chamber) and, whether the barrel is factory or after market (and which barrel maker it's from) you might see $600 or so on the upper end or as low as $300.

If you do put it up for sale, put LOTS of pictures of the gun from all sides and angles. Bolt open, close-ups of any markings on the rifle (which may require pulling the scope and rings). Barrel length and any signs of rust or other dents/dings the rifle may have.

One other thing that might help is a target showing what the rifle will do on the range. 3-5 shot group should make someone happy that's looking for a 'new' rifle. Someone wanting it as a donor would like it on the lower end of the price range given.

Good luck with it.

Ding Ding Ding... We have a winner. The mag cutoff was an easy clue.

I'm glad you called it a 1903, that action didn't look anything like my Mauser. I was about to do more research.

Yup.

So, exactly what caliber is it?

It would be ultra cool if it turned out to be chambered in .35 Whelen, 7mm-06,or 6mm-06. I think there should be SOMETHING stamped on the barrel indicating the chambering.

Definitely a 1903, but it is a Mauser type action. In fact, I remember reading the US got sued by Mauser for patent infringement right before WW1.

The trigger shoe is another indication that it may be more than meets the eye. Hopefully a more desirable caliber rebarrel.
