Yes, if barrel and wood is good, that is a fine price. You had no luck with your A3 because you did not do research BEFORE , and you bought a rifle that was not GI. Do research before if possible. If you don't; you take a gamble with what you end up with.

i know - old thread , i missed this one somehow ,

YES - these are some of the most accurate , if you get a good one , thats the problem there were millions [of all three mfgrs ] made they served in both world wars - as foreign aid and police service all over the globe , they were issued to VFWs for gravesite duty and parade use , they represent the first extensive US contracted service rifles in the 20th century , some of the most interesting research you may ever do ,
