    Beautiful. My trouble was No5s advertised I couldn't be sure if they were Santa Fe conversions. Holy cow, they have really gone up. Thanks. My SVT40 valued 3X from when I bought it 15 or 20 years ago and my Webley MkVI is through the roof.

    I'm looking for value of Sears model 54 rifle. My searches for advertised rifles comes back sold. I bought it back in 1971 as a backup gun in patrol car, even put a scope on it. I carried it for a short time as a backup and replaced it with my Winchester carbine.

    Thanks. I've been on gun broker and other sites and can get lost. Holy cow, it really has gone up in value compared what I paid for it in 1971.

    I picked up an older one a couple years ago. Was face to face from a guy in the area. Paid like $350 for it I believe. I am thinking you could get $450 easily here for one right now

  9. Yup, I had one, too a nice lever, rifle, values are reasonable and they can still be found....if the gun said, NAME BRAND on it , it'd be worth more...great value!

    One more thing I'm looking for. Aries 350 Guardian night vision scope. What I'm finding is Aries MK350 Guardian scopes and values are all over the place. Heres mine. It has different base compared to the Aries MK350. ATN 350 night vision 001.JPG

    Going over my Mosins I remember back in 1964 you could buy them for $10.00 each. Was at my local gun store couple weeks ago and they had one on the wall 91/30 for $419.00. Ouch.

    Coming to my wits end. I have a number of SMLE No MkIII*s and have been all over net trying to find values. Gun broker etc.. you name it. I'm right now just trying to figure out average values. One is an Ishapore. Dates 1918s 1915s etc.. All in military configuration. One has volly sights and another has magazine cut off.

    Beautiful. Can't thank you enough. I remember as a kid they were every where for a dime a dozen. This saves me a heck of a lot of time.
