Milsurps will appreciate in value.  1911s are going to stay flat.

Look at where cheap M44s were at one time, now look at prices, im guessing other C&R is the same. I could dig thru a barrel and pull out a “shootable” M44 for 50 bux

Both of those together probably aren't worth what your 1911A1 is worth.  Bad trade.

The Yugos are pretty stagnant in value, around $300 or so. The fact that they were never really used attributes to that I think. I enjoy shooting my K98 far more.

This.

Your 1911 isn’t collectible...yet. By the time it is, what will the rifles be worth?

I don’t think either of those rifles will skyrocket. Both were imported in large numbers and it isn’t like they break and get thrown away. But there’s probably a little more headroom in them.

It may come down to shooting enjoyment, however. If the rifles aren’t really turning your crank, will you shoot the 1911 enough to enjoy it more? Or is it just sitting there in your safe next to other 1911’s and not being shot?

Neither rifle was likely to have been used in WW2, the M91/59's were chopped down after the war. I'd skip on them.

Combined value of both rifles on today's market would be $500-700 depending on condition. The trade would be about even or advantageous for you if you have a GI or Mil Spec SA.

Both rifles could have seen use during WWII in their previous M91/30 and M24 configurations.

Wow, are they that expensive these days?  I got mine for well less than 1/2 that.

A 91/59 was unlikely to have been used in that configuration in WWII, but from my understanding they were often cut down from 91/30s which most likely did see action in WWII, albiet maybe in back units.  Of course they were re-arsenaled, refinished and rebuilt after the war like a lot of the Mosins were.  The USSR was so strapped for rifles duing WWII that it was unlikely that very many of anything in 7.62x54R didn't see some kind of service in those days.
