I inherited a .270 Voere Laufstahl 3 from my father when he passed away and I was wondering the value, not that I plan to sell it though. He bought it new in the 1970's and the gun is mint. I couldn't seem to find any info about this model on the Internet anywhere.

Grant,

Welcome to the site Howdy

Firstly LAUFSTAHL 3 means "barrel steel" (Boehler N:r 3) so thats not part of the model name. Smile

Voere is the company name so go to www.voere.com/ and find what model you have it might aid in your sreach for a value. Smile

As for a value I'm not too sure sorry. Smile

Dimitri

Thanx for the welcome.

I guess I should learn a little German... Laughing

Hmmm.......I went to the Voere site and can find no model that looks like mine. I did find a 30/06 Voere at another page that looked like it and they called it a model 3000. That was the only mention of that model I could find. Oh well, the value is of no great concern, I was just curious. All I know is that she's a pretty gun and a very accurate rifle.

Grant,

I dont know German all I did was Google your rifle and it came up with a hit about someone wondering about a "Voere LAUFSTAHL 3" and someone responding to it Wink

Hope you find your answer though Smile

Back in the 1970s, a local gun shop was selling Voere Model 2155 rifles for $130.00 each. I managed to scape together enough money to buy a .243, a .270 and a.30-06. Still have them. All the best...

If I remember correctly, my dad had said that he paid in the $300.00 range for it. He commented on that a few years back because that was a lot of money back in the 70's. Took it out with me for openeing day of Mule's and Moose spike fork bulls this weekend. At about noon I tested a load I made for it with 130 grain Noslers. One inch group at 100 yards just shooting over the hood of the truck, me likes this gun more every time iI shoot it...... Cool

Hi, Grant

Whatever the Voere's value is to you, HOLD ON TO IT. I bought one in 1996 in 30-06 for $400, and it's one of the sweetest handling guns you will ever find. For such a light rifle, the recoil didn't feel as heavy as other '06's that I've fired. I was shooting 2" groups with MILITARY ammo...from a sitting position with no rest @100yds. I've fired other rifles with this type of accuracy, but I've never had one to fit me so well that it felt like an extension of myself. I'm sure once I handload for it, it will be boringly accurate.

Good luck seeing another one of these beauties. I saw one online a few years ago for $1000, used. That may not necessarily relate to its appraisal value, but may make you feel better.

Erik

Go to www.gunbroker.com and click on "rifle" under the heading "Firearms" and type in "Voere" and hit search. You will be mildly suprised.
