I am looking to get this rifle on gunbroker. Then I realized I wasn't going to spend 15 grand on a rifle.

Does anyone think this rifle is going to sell at $15,000?
http://www.gunbroker...?Item=470480237

Is it weird that the gunbroker seller phas his pictures time stamped from a year ago, using the same pictures as the guy below and used the same description? "crown jewels of anyones collection." He has a good rating so he might have bought it from the guy below and recycled the ad.

Not nearly enough info on the rifle to say it's worth more than $500. No details on the scope at all, or any rifle specs. Cool thumb-hole stock, that's about it. Aside from that, anyone else think it's weird that Israel buys German rifles and issues them to their troops? just sayin.

Suspicious. The armslist post is Michigan, the gunbroker seller is Texas. Something seems rotten in the state of Denmark.

Sure it will sell. For that price, maybe not. They are very collectible and only so many out there. I could see it getting 7-10K.

Seems the GB is hyped up and they're hoping to lure a high price. I've seen source say that 600 were imported to the US, the GB ad says only 100.
There was also an old Gunsamerica listing that had one at $2700.

The very same looking rifle is in this thread and at 2011 was listed in a Gun Shop for $4K.

Here's the history on the Israeli IDF Mauser M-66 SP Sniper, and I believe Springfield also made a repo. And yes, Israel used a few German mausers for sniper platforms.

Hey Simpson Ltd. just got in a WW1 era 1918 Remington Mark I Pedersen bolt action 30-06 with a penderson device for a mere $59,000 if that's your thing. :P

My $800 30-06 does just fine ....That much money I'd build a custom 67 Chevelle.

The trick is to find a sucker bigger than yourself when you go to resell it.

HK PSG-1's go for around $10-15k IF you can find them.

Not sure this is in that "collectible" category

And here is the very same rifle almost a year ago for $8500, notice the bumps in the orange background fabric are identical, same pictures being used in the ad and same text.

Nimrod Scopes were made in Japan by Koor Industries and brought in as "Hunting Scopes" Later ones were not true Nimrod Scopes they were called such and were part of a military contract with the IDF

Is the Israeli Defense Forces adopting a gun made and used by the very people that tried and almost succeeded in exterminating them funny, or merely ironic?

Why not? They were given tons of Mausers after WWII

Neither funny nor ironic, just practical.

If it's free, it's for me!

The Mauser was a superior rifle, and neither the British nor the Americans were opening up their armories after WII.

Was the stock israeli also? between 19407 and 1960s Israel was still using a LOT of WWII surplus from all over the word.
If you find a Springfield 03A3, or an Enfield with Hebrew lettering engraved onto the stock and matching numbers that could seriously be worth a lot. Mousers, 03A3s and other weapons (I heard a legend of some Lever actions sent there too by private donors in the late 1940s.)

I have been outbid on auctions for non-israeli Rifles that were re-purposed for Israeli use that easily went over 10K but that is when you see the hebrew lettering stamps on the barrel, chamber and stock. .
HOWEVER, I did not see picks of the Israeli markings stamped on the action, scope and certainly not the stock with a thumb grip which happens to look relatively new-cerainly newer than the mouser action....We do see english labeling on the scope though.... not sure...
Again, if it is all verified, it will go for over $10K for sure.

If not, I am not sure--- but I do know that anything with hebrew lettering on them goes for vast premiums.

You are 100% correct. The ones that fetch a lot of money (and yes over 10K sometimes) are those that have hebrew lettering stamped on the barrel/action AND stock..... those seem to fetch huge bids.
