I agree with Cass. I have seen some totally ridiculous prices on the CMP auction site. I think paying more than about $5000 for a near new, not refurbed. untouched, beyond reproach A4 would be unwise. Anything lesser condition or questionable rifle is reduced in value accordingly.Gary:
I think the rifle has a market value of about $4,000 but will probably bring at least $7,500 on the CMP auction. The CMP auctions bring prices that are about 1.5 to 2 times the market prices, especially on sniper items. It borders on the ridiculous at times.
About 10% of the A4's were the "z" series which was the result of a numbering error. A3 production inadvertently overran into the s/n block reserved for A4's so the "z" was added to avoid duplication. This was an established procedure and occasionally A3's are also seen with a "Z" as part of the s/n.Would you guys ascribe any additional premium to a Z series?
CMP Auctions tend to run much higher than Market. As of a few minutes ago the price was already over $5,000. With 11 days to go do not be surprised if the final price tops out at closer to $8 or $9. K. Maybe even more.odcmp auction has a 1903 a4 sniper with scope on auction. It is presently bid at about $3700. Could someone give me it's worth so I can place a bid.
All right, if any one has to have one I will sell one of mine for the same price! And then turn around and start looking for more to replace it with. I have one in almost mint condition that I only gave $2800 for last year and thought it high. The condition was the only reason I went that high.The CMP M1903A4 on auction closed this evening @$9,855.00.
