Anybody want to sell? If not whats it worth to you? Mine is not for sell. I can not put a price on something I wanted so bad. I'd pay up to Ten for another one if I had the chance. Funny, I don't see one owned by The Cabinet Maker? But that Shawn guy sure does have one!
A couple of notes: Russianfreak's ob1gr is also XXX'd Now a couple of questions. How do we go about confirming the "unconfirmed". There must be a history of ownership if they are on the list? The Ministry of National Defense German: Does anyone have any theories as to why and by whom this was done? Undoubtedly this was done when ownership of the rifles was transferred out of MfNV, like when they were shipped to Vietnam or some other entity.
Then the next question is: Guess that would depend on the enthusiasm of the person ordering or doing the defacing. A similar example would be the British stamping military weapons with the 2 broad arrow markings pointing at each other, indicating release from military ownership. Not all ex-British weapons have this stamp.
In fact, very few do, in my experience. It is said that some of the East German sks carbines may have landed in Africa It may be possable that they were defaced in that shipment. MY vietnam one is not defaced and the two we captured in the First Cav 65 66 were not defaced Canada is buying a very large shipment of sks carbines some very used some excellent all from two large sales in Africa no telling what will show up in those and what ones they will not bothwer to ship because of condition to bad we cant buy any of them.
I had asked Vic if instead of having the silver bullet member put under my user name if he could put The Cabinet Maker. Well I think he misunderstood me. So now it is what it is. It will certainly be interesting to see which nationalities show up in the shipment. No way to tell if it went to Africa first.
It seems I have upset a member of the boards with my post. To clear things up a bit ,I would pay 10k for another one if i had the chance. Now to clearify for the one and any others who have an issue when they ask if "I would like to buy theirs and I say not at the time". It was stated to me that by saying "If I had the chance" may have been an unclear mesage that I would by it now and put an artiical value on the E.
I never ment for that to be the outcome. But if i did have it right now I would more than happy pay that for one so I see no reason for that to be a false value. If i were to sell mine it would be triple that.
So whos to say the value is false? Its worth as much as a collector is willing to pay or has paid. He stated that it makes it hard for people to buy one with the false value I have placed. Really cause I thought they were hard enough just to find one. So if 10K is false what is correct? I'd pay ten not right now but I would Any other care to chime in? That said, would that set an artificial value if a purchase was made? One guy would pay that. If no one else would pay that then it is just a spike, and sets no overall value for what the market will bear for the remainder of them out there.
I heard a quanitity of grade c through f former eastern block importable arms and militaria of origin east germany and yugoslavia in the way of simonov carbines sks , individual and squad ak 7. Meaning, there seems to be alot of talk now of east german simonov carbines sks , meaning I guess the value and scarcity of such will be pretty low relatively speaking.
I am supposing this has happened like I heard? Right now, out of the fourteen known and six unconfirmed there are exactly none that are up on a public auction. So, who knows what they are worth? Not ten thousand yet, but who really knows? Never seen one on Gunbroker. Well, thanks to Andgunsforall, we now know that there are thousands of grade c to f East German SKS rifles inbound to our beautiful shores.
I'm only doing this to be nice, because when the hoards arrive, your rifles will be worthless. I'll even pay for obliterated marks! Then we can mete them out individually to obscure "non-internet" collectors who will never announce their prizes to the world, thus keeping the values of the existing guns artificially overblown.
Either way works for me. And yes, this is the official beginning on an internet rumor of a coast-to-coast Karabiner S conspiracy. Oh, and the that I torch-cut had Cuban acceptance stamps and were smuggled out of Venezuela - where else would the Chavez signatures have come from? I saved a couple dozen straps for those who are interested. Kim Jong and I are currently negotiating another deal, but that's another conspiracy for another subject matter altogether. Please don't spread this information around.
The rifle seems to be in excellent condition and has bring back papers from Europe, as the rifle probably came over the wall with one of the East german border guards that escaped into the West.
Check it out as it has some pictures. The other serial number comes from a very old friend down in Florida, his serial number is 60U k95 markings on receiver. I hope this adds to your research. Hey tex Thats Mr. Tranchmann I'm going to meet with him soon. I put his on the list already. Too cool ,small world. Can't wait to see what that goes for,Says its been refinished. But a good looking gun and with papers. Yeah, but for someone who has always wanted an EG it could be a place filler until that unmessed with one rolls around But as I said for a collector i would have to tell seller that he messed up a real rare piece and lowered its value.
I was also hoping no one was going to post that either. Well gentlemen, it would seem that we're going to find out just what the market really is for East Germans.
I know I'll be in the running for this as you just can't have too many good things. Folks will bid what they're prepared to pay for it. Go to the site and check out the December catalog. Looking like the auction is going to be hotter thn I first thought. LOL List updated 60U was already there. There's definitely blue in the pitting and the arsenal marking is "weak" at best, with part of it being indecipherable the 9 is clear though, probably 19 and some sort of letter.
Also, I think the wood might be lightly refinished as the stock is very lightin color compared to my minty one and the numbers are soft. That all being said, it is all matching and a solid example. Another member with an acquaintance who works at the auction and familiar with the rifle posted some information about it on another forum. I'd like to see that post, can you please point me in the right direction?
Looking at the auction pictures, the paperwork does not match the rifle. D big red flag???? This is not officially confirmed via the Rock Island "realized price" list, but those who are in the know concur on the final selling figure. Paperwork seems to be an honest mistake, but corrected with an overtype.
Not my cup of tea. Great pics of the Honor Guards. A point to note, the guns that are depicted in these photos are likely not true manufactured East German rifles. And instead are probably Russian SKS's with polished bolt carriers and bayonets, fitted with the East German laminated Honor Guard stock with a chromed, cupped buttplate. I made a repro out of a '54 Tula last spring. Many were exported away to places where they've likely been used, abused, and probably not to be exported again from their current locations.
Another to add to the database. Arsenal mark is defaced, but the rest is pristine. I'll let badash fill you in on the rest of the details. There's a fellow in a neighboring state that has a bringback in what appears to be absolutely perfect condition.
I wish he'd join the forum to show photos of it. It's one that would be hard to beat.
