    I am curious to see what the value of this rifle may be. It is a Kleinguenther Model K-15 chambered in 7mm Mag. Only ten rounds have been through it. Also, if anyone knows of a custom synthetic stock that will fit this rifle because this thing is HEAVY.

    Welcome to TFF.

    Why would you want to change the stock on a custom rifle ?

    The gunsmith put alot of work into building the rifle. As far as putting a price on a custom built gun of any kind, there is no standard to go by that I can find. Sorry.

    Okay, according to my blue book (1998), the gun was made in Seguin, TX and sold in the early '80's. The prices are for base model only with no other special order customer add ons.

    100% = $1,375
    98% = 1,100
    95% = 950
    90% = 800
    80% = 675
    70% = 575
    60% = 500

    MSRP was $1,375.00

    Hope this helps. My book is a few years old and I think to change the stock would be a total detriment to the quality of the rifle.

    Guns were guaranteed to be 1/2 MOA on delivery! The K-15 was a Mauser Action.

    Values in the latest Blue Book (2003) are the same as inplanotx gave.

    If you change the stock, you'll ruin the rifle's value. If you don't like the weight, sell it and buy another rifle.

    KDF is still in business, in Seguin, Tx.
    I think Fred Koene is the guy you need to talk to.
