I have never tried to load it with a stripper clip, does have to have a guide there?

If you are new to Just Answer, please read this:

At the top right above our post are a series of 5 stars. I always strive for 5 star service, but please rate as you feel is appropriate. However, if you are considering a low rating, please try to give me the opportunity to improve my service to you first!

The 5-30 Making means this rifle was made in May of 1930. This is also confirmed by your serial number. I am not sure about the lack of a stripper clip slot. It seems strange however there were often things that were omitted to speed up the machining process. Here are the values for your Springfield 1903.

Values below are listed by condition. The prices listed are retail prices. You can usually expect 25%-30% less than retail when selling to a gun shop or re-seller. Private party buyers usually pay prices closer to the retail value.

Springfield 1903 from 1930 if in original (non modified condition).

Excellent:------$1,800

Very Good:-----$950

Good:----------$750

Fair:------------$500

I hope this helps.

Please let me know if I have answered your question.
