    There is a czech mauser up for auction today in my area at an estate sale and I was thinking about placing a bid. What do you think would be good selling price so I don't overbid? Here's the picture:

    The picture is not great, but the guy says that the numbers match.
    There's also a garand, a muzzleloader of some kind, and I think a BB gun.

    That's a postwar build. Its worth about $200 tops.

    you're the man Cracked Butt! Thanks for the tip. I'm looking for a shooter, so that sounds about right for what I'm looking for. Any other input?

    anyone care to take a guess at what the muzzle loader is and how much it's worth? I'm guessing Thompson Center Encore maybe?

    Mine is an excellent shooter with handloads. Just check the bore- it should be almost new looking. The trigger might be hit or miss, the one on mine is fairly stiff.

    Any marking on the receiver ring? Other places? These are the things that may improve its value if and when you decide to sell it later, but of course have nothing to do with "shootability."

    That is the carbine version of the Traditions Buckhunter Pro pistol. I forget what it's proper model name is. I have held them at the Traditions factory store, and they hold VERY nicely, and are comfortable (this comeing from somebody who doesn't like inlines). I forget the price, but they weren't exactly cheap. They are Spanish made, and are decent quality. However, they are not designed for heavy loadings IIRC.

    The carbines have been discontinued, but here's info on the pistol.

    Also, the Czech Mauser *appears* to have a winter trigger guard on it (to allow easier shooting with gloved hands). When FAC was selling them, the winter trigger guard models were priced a few bucks (maybe $10 over) the price of the standard trigger guard models.

    Probably Israeli contract, but still not a bad rifle to buy.
