We really do need a lot more information before we can answer. Springfield Armory bwgan making rifles back in 1855 and continued doing so until Congress allowed it's doors to be closed well over 100 years later. In that time they produced over 20 different rifles and variations, from single shot musket rifles to full automatic rifles (M14a1). The good news, is that when in good shape, all of them have some value. Presumably your rifle has a date stamp on it somewhere. That would at least give us a clue as to what you may have. Even better (you will have to add the front parts) you could go to wikipedia . com and using the Springfield rifle page there (found at //en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Springfield_rifle ) click on the various links until you find a picture of your model. Then get back to us for further discussion. Determining value (defined as what someone will actually pay for it, vs a pie in the sky figure) is easy. Just go to guunbroker and after registering type in your model in advanced search mode and look at closed auctions and see how much people paid for a similar rifle in the last 20 sales *note many of the ones with pie in the sky prices just get re-listed over and over because the price the owner wants is not grounded in a reality*.
