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.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

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
