    So im selling my 308 custom built mauser and would like to know a price range that is reasonable. Its a k98 action with a featherweight barrel with a match grade chamber and muzzle break, it has a fajen synthetic stock and a leupold scope in a redfield base mount. Just a plain old bluing nothing fancy, so any price suggestions?

    Pictures of the rifle with up close shots of fit and finish, along with the barrel manufacturers name would help with value. Sporterized Mausers are great but they rarely bring the sum of the parts and labor.

    the smith that built the rifle is what will determine most of the value, however like the second poster stated being a sporterized 98 you might be better off keeping it.

    Remember, custom built means custom built for you.

    What you put in to the rifle isn't necessarily what a potential buyer will see it being.

    If I were you, I'd hang on to it. It sounds like a nice rifle.
