1949 GRI No1 Mk3 that was a wire wrap but has been unwrapped and the stock cleaned up. Its numbers are all matching with one or two small factory repairs to the stock, it has a great barrel.

Well, being refinished hurts value, but a good ballpark is about $175-250, depending on how appealing it looks and where in the country you are.

I seen them go for $100-150 around here.

Some Dunham's stores have recently stocked them for around $150. I bought my wirewrap about 2 years ago for that price.

They almost always have a repair at the heel of the stock as the rifle was inverted with the heel placed on the ground for launching grenades.

The heel and toe repairs on the Indian rifles also were a result of the drill practices of their army. They slammed their rifles to the ground during drills, messing up the stocks.

An Enfield originally modified to fire granades and then having the wrap removed would make it worth less to a collector. Most collectors would pass it by unless under about $75. At least that's my two cents worth. And I do have more than a dozen Enfields of one sort and another.

By the way, I got a 1MKIII granade launcher rifle in service condition with granade cup from the old Springfield Sporters back in 2002 for $75 plus $12 shiping. Now the granade cups I've seen offered for $125.

I agree with Niner. Most collectors would pass entirely unless it was a very good price.
It would probably be worth more as a sporting/hunting rifle.

+1 to Niner and Chipperman.
