    WTK: Value of Spanish FR8 mauser....

    I am needing to find out the value of what appears to be a good condition spanish FR8 mauser chambered in .308.. The guy who is wanting to sell it to me says the bore is good, but has some minor pitting and the bolt matches the receiver. He also told me that the furniture looks good / decent as well.. I normally don't deal with or play with bolt action rifles much, but I've always wanted an FR8 and I need to know a fair price before I go throw down the cheese for it..

    I have pics and will post them shortly.

    What's a fair price??


    Thanks in advance!

    HWG, I bought mine in the spring on Gunbroker for $380 and it is just about perfect; I had no idea it was as nice as it was until I got it home.

    It seems like the going price is anywhere from $350 to $450, tho I have seen them a bit higher, which would not interest me. As it's got 'some' pitting and you state that it's in 'good' condition you are looking at $350 tops and realistically what $320 or below?

    Its a fun little gun to shoot and being short, you can fit it almost anywhere. I think it would be a great little rifle in the back of a truck.

    I'll be curious to see the pics when you get them up.

    I got mine 8 years ago for $150 so the value has definately climbed.

    Sturmvogel is right on with what I have seen over the past 3-4 years. The price of these rifles has settled out to be between 300 and 450 depending on the rifle and seller.

    Not really good for anything, but fun to push down the stairs.

    I agree with tribe on this one - $300 - $450 depending on condition obviously.

    You know I picked up an unfinished (read unissued and rough finish only) FR8 stock a while back and have been sitting on it just in case I found a beat up rifle that came up at a decent price....

    No, I am not selling it either. :P
