    Sako Forester.

    Just had this come into the shop at Hoki.
    One owner. In 243. Barrel is mint. Contrail rings.

    Original paperwork from 1968

    Scope is a cheap ol Bushnell.
    But rifle and rings in awesome condition for a 50 Yr old rifle.

    What is something like this worth?

    No, no, absolute rubbish. I'll do him a favour and take it off his hands for $200.

    He should get what it's worth. Not his fault he doesn't know its worth something.

    $1 reserve Auction on Trade Me be my advice then - that over a 10 day time frame will get him full value

    At the end of the day "Its Worth" what someone is prepared to pay. Having said that, that recent Vixen 222 on tm sold for $1950 and I know the barrel was pretty sick, so on that basis you'd have to be looking at around $2000 surely.
