    Be prepared to have very deep pockets to buy one. One sold at the antique arms auction sold for over $5000.

    @jim160

    How much of the $5000 was for the bayonet lug?

    Last 2 auctions I went to they went for 5900 plus auction fees and 5200 plus auction fees. That was carvells and the Wellington auction. That is a ridiculous sum, look into importing, may cost around 3200-3500 but you can get a mint one for that price.

    Not even remotely worth what they’re going for at auction - I don’t bother going anymore. A couple of bidders with deep pockets and she’s all over.

    But unfortunately thats what you might have to pay. As people will now sell at auction rather than privately. People will always want top dollar for what they sell.

    Simpson Ltd in the States will export and have them in stock. Looked into it, but never got around to placing an order. Would work out cheaper than current NZ prices.

    Can I pls ask, what is the main attraction to these rifles, are they used as a retro target rifle, as a military collectible? Surely not something you’d just hang on a wall? Also, is the post war Navy .308 version considered desirable?

    Very friendly emails and willing to help. Definitely worth looking into for those wanting a Garand or '03 springfield. They recommend both on one export permit to save money.
