I went to a favorite local gun shop today to look around. There were perhaps a half dozen surplus military bolt action rifles sitting in the used gun racks. The best were two Belgian .30-06 Mauser rifles priced at $600 each. Both rifle stocks had been heavily sanded and had acquired varnish finishes. One rifle had a Pachmayr recoil pad which hurt any collector value because the original stock had been shortened. There was a Swedish Model 1896 long rifle also with a sanded stock and had a hang tag price of $500. The remaining military rifles were in terrible condition and very much overpriced. I am glad for what I got when I got it at much better prices years ago. All the best...

Pretty high prices, would be interesting to watch and see if they sell. I've messed a lot with my x-military rifles, they were cheep and no real collector value, but I also kept the original parts (including stocks that I replaced). I don't think they'll ever be worth more than I bought them for, but if a pristine re-arsenal gets hard to find then I know a few rifles I have will shine like a star and might bring a higher price.

I sold an SKS a few years ago and a Hakim, making a few extra dollars on my original purchase, but they were in such good condition. Still I haven't found either rifle for sale that was as good as what I sold. Probably should have kept them.....oh well. People that are new to collecting might think those are bargain prices but time is your friend and waiting and searching is the game.
