    That is a fine example. I'd like to buy it, but then I'd be paying for a divorce too!

    Reminds me of the people who buy old classic guitars for big bucks and then lock them away never to be played.

    I guess it's a decent investment for people with money who like guns though.

    It will be interesting to see where it finally tops out with money being so tight and so on.
    Thinking it will cap out around $7500.00

    If I ever had the money to purchase a firearm of that sort, I would probably loose any sign of willpower and send up shooting it.

    while it is an amazing piece of history, I could buy 15 norinco copies for that price :)

    whoever buys it will be overpaying possibly by several thousand. There is an all original 1897 in very good condition sitting in a Fort Worth gun shop on consignment for $3,600. Everything is original including the heat shield, leather sling, bayonet and even the bayonet cover I believe. Matching numbers also.

    It's a very nice example of a transitional WW2 Model 97 trench gun. It has the early WB marked stock and 6 row cooling holes heat shield, but the receiver has the later markings with both the "US" and Ord bomb. A couple of weeks ago the same seller sold a minty Model 12 trench gun for over $10,000. I suspect it could go for $8,000 or more.

    I would make up a magazine plug for it and take it duck hunting. :)

    Found a model 12 GHD stock, flaming bomb barrel and receiver in a pawn shop about 15 years ago for $250. They thought it was just a cut off model 12. It was missing the heat shield, lug, sling, etc. Sold it like a dumbass for $350 a year later to buy a ring for a girl thats been long gone. Man that thing was fun to shoot and cool as hell.
