I like it! built two this last summer using peeps,a 93 spanish and a 98 turkish. working as time allows on restocking a 03-a3 springfield now.ive scoped it,but can remove the scope and use the original peep if needed.replaced the original front with a banded base and wider aftermarket sight. makes it much easier to see with my poor old eyes.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see Jack, one of my favorite rifles is a ratty old 95 Mauser 7x57. Wears an equally ratty old Bishop stock and a Williams peep. I think I've actually carried that rifle and shot more stuff with it than anything other than my 22's and trusty old 16 ga Ithaca. Just one of those guns that seems to hits whatever its pointed at. I don't think I could get $100.00 for it, but I wouldn't take $500.00! There's no flies on the grand old 7x57!

So now if you had to take a guess as to how much this 1891 Argentine is worth what would you say???

Price of the action, maybe less. $100.00. Sell it at flea market.

IMO most any centerfire rifle in good repair is worth at least $100.00. That rifle I would say a max would be in the $250.00 area. It's sporterized, not original. That decreases value in a rifle like the 91. I'm sorry but the demand for rifles like that just doesn't exist anymore. In original military clothes it might be worth up over $500.00.

I think you are being generous on your estimate. I would expect to see a $150 price tag on that at a local shop, and it would languish in the rack. It has most everything going against it, obscure caliber, weak action, sporterized, funky magazine.

The only thing it really has going for is the fact it is an antique/pre 1899.

Well, these days with people paying $60K for pickups, I figured I add a little.

I wouldn't call the 91 a "weak" action exactly. No, it's not a Arisaka or 98 Mauser, but it's a far stronger action than some of it's contemporaries like our beloved Krag. It's certainly strong enough and made well enough for the original round which is on par with standard 308 ammo. And despite the "funky" mag, it works very, very well. Those that find the M-N in it's various alterations or the SKS or the Steyrs or Mannlichers fun to play with would probably also enjoy the 91 Argie.

Only reason I would like to sell it is the fact I have enough varied rifle rounds that to branch out to another one just is not logical

Yes I understand that the demand for such a rifle is not way up there and due to what has been done makes it less so. My self I like the old Russian rifles and hand guns due to the fact they seem to be some of the hardest built weapons I have seen and ammo is for the most part easy and cheap

I plan on selling it. I want to scale down some so I have fewer sizes of ammo to deal with and it being an odd ball it just does not fit in with the plans. I already have 4 other size rounds I keep on hand and this one would make it 5 so makes since to sell this one and buy another one that uses the same ammo as I already use most of the time

IF that rifle was on a rack here,i would seriously look at it for $150. and would be interested at $200 if the rifling at the muzzle looks good. unfortunatly its not here, and would cost a lot to ship it here. JUST 5 RIFLES??? how do you operate? LOL My oldest grand daughter carried more guns than that home with her over the summer so she could target shoot, duck hunt, etc since she's moved to arkansas. She called a few days ago wanting to pick up her old deer rifle when she's here for christmas. I dont mind, it gives me an excuse for buying/building another one,and I would rather them have them than some stranger after im gone.

Note I did not say 5 guns of any sort I said 5 ammo sizes/types!!!!!!! I will not say how many guns I have but will say it is a good number of them but I do collect guns also. I am just trying to narrow down the number of Calipers I have so that ammo is easy to stock pile since having many cals. costs a guy a lot to keep on hand
