    Default Value on a M1917?

    Looking to possible add one of these to my collection. Can someone provide a general value to an M1917. Looking for a typical run of the mill model that can put some lead down range with a reasonable amount of accuracy.

    Thanks in advance.

    Most of the M1917s surely will be Eddystones and will most likely be rebuilds/rearsenalized with parts of all three manufacturers (R, W, E). I think you could get a good shooter for $600 to $800 if you advertise on the CSP WTB classified. Gunshows have a few for sale at the $800 or more price but with JA replacement barrels. Eddystone receivers have an alleged reputation for potential cracks when rebarrelled. If you find one at a gunshow, be sure of the TE and MW if you intend to shoot it. Also, gunshow M17s are overpriced by a couple of hundred $. So if you see a good one, haggle. If the vendor is firm, go to another. Many list high $ but will come down especially in today's economy.

    Go to the website Curio and Relic Buds for an indication of what they say are the current market values of the M17. Eddystones bring the least value, Remington moreso, and Winchester the most $, all things being equal in quality. Another website to reference is oldguns.net to see what they are listing prices at.

    An Eddystone in good usable condition, you can expect to pay 400 to 650
    Remington's will usually go in the range of 500 to 700 and Winchesters and usually priced way too much to bother with (600 to over a grand).

    There are still a lot out there that can be had really cheap if you hit yard sales, estate sales and the classifieds.

    Good luck and let us see what you get when you buy one
