    So I Got This WW1 Battle Rifle...
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Actually it's a US Model of 1917 with Remington markings. 6-18 barrel date. Not rearsenalled. Stock is VG+, bluing is excellent overall except at the exposed muzzle where it looks like it was partially cleaned with naval jelly. Not cut, all handguards and swivels present, etc. Bore is a little dark but strong, might clean up (will see this weekend).

    What do you think, O Wise Crufflers? Will it bring 3 C-Notes?

    In the condition you describe, I have seen these go anywhere from $300 to $400.

    I got offered between 450-500 for mine. Sounds like yours is in similar condition. I only paid 250 but I plan on keeping it original and just plain keeping it. regards swede
