$70,000 at least.
Depending on the reserve it may not sell at all. Not as much money around now as in the past for this type of investment. Alot of the folks with the deep pockets also got hit real hard, depending on where there money was. We shall see.

I'm waiting to hear someone try to say it has a Wincheter stock on it, LOL. Perfect example of what I have been telling folks for years about SA having the arched underside first and early WRA's not having it. Rick B
Wonderful rifle! I also enjoyed looking at both side of the stock where he used it to align the cartridge tips in the clip.
Um... er... pardon my cynicism, but this "vet bring back" rifle is just too good to be true. Sorry, but the story reeks of fish! (Yesterday's fish.) It's not quite as bad as "the rifle m'gran'daddy fit the war with," but it's close. Genuine gastrap? Well, maybe, but I'd bet serious money against it.

I wonder how he managed to take the rifle home? That would be the interesting story. I saw no proof this was the actual rifle he had in Europe. Expensive story!
I'd like to hear how he managed to keep it throughout the war and then bring it home ......
Nice. VERY NICE. In fact, I got a special feeling in my shorts looking at that one and I did'nt have to take a little blue pill either!
I collect expensive hobbies.
