I have a chance to pick up a 1909 Argentine mauser receiver with bolt. The bolt and receiver are matching and the crest is intack. Receiver was made in Berlin also. How much should I offer for the receiver? I was thinking about $50..............is that fair? The condition of the receiver is awesome.

PROBABLY MISSING THE FLOORPLATE AND TRIGGER GUARD ASSEMBLY???

THE 1909 ACTION IS HIGHLY PRIZED FOR THAT ITEM, IT IS ALMOST 'SPORTING' IN NATURE AND HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER BY BUILDERS OF FINE SPORTING RIFLES............

$40-50 WOULD BE A REASONABLE PRICE TO GIVE...........

A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, I PURCHASED A COLUMBIAN FN MDL1950 SHORT RIFLE, (BBLD ACTION), IN 30-06 FOR $25, AND THOUGHT IT A DECENT DEAL..........

It has the trigger/guard assembly but it's missing the floorplate which is no biggie to me.

IT MAY BECOME ONE WHEN YOU TRY TO FIND A REPLACEMENT....

UNLESS YOU JUST SWAP THE WHOLE GUARD ASSEMBLY WITH A MORE MUNDANE MDL 98.....

I just sold something similar on the EE with a (fully disclosed)shot out barrel. $75. It had a nice stock though.

If I saw one at a fun show on a table for $50 I snatch it up in a heartbeat. Especially if I were making it into a custom rifle, I'd customize a stock 98 floorplate/triggerguard to fit. Even if I was to put it back to original, I'd still grab it for $50. 09's are a heck of an action, especially with the crest intact.
