For the record also, I dont want to sell these. This is for insurance purposes
Here are the parts. All verified originals by several Japanese MG collectors. Thanks for the help!
Hopper mechanism (minus the basket itself).
Oiler mechanism that sits on top of gun
Barrel shrouds, each with their bipod legs

Condition, completeness very important which you don’t note below. A feed hopper assembly missing the internals or the “basket”, which I assume is the hopper you note is apparently missing on your part makes the part a great deal less valuable. Finding feed hopper internals is extremely difficult. Same for bolts. A stripped bolt has signifianctly lower value than a complete example.
Bore and chamber on barrel? Was it DEWATed and if so repaired or?
So estimating values on your parts is difficult without knowing more about them.
I’ll list what I believe are valid value ranges from experience with finding and purchasing parts in the last five years.
Hopper mechanism (minus the basket itself). Don’t know what this means
Recoil springs $150
Firing pins $250
Muzzle cap $500 plus
Oiler mechanism that sits on top of gun $350-500
Barrel shrouds, each with their bipod legs[/quote] $500 up
I would increase insurance vaue at least 50-100 percent since none of these parts are easy to find and will be far more so in the future.

Not trying to hijack but on a related not has anyone ever seen a type 11 cartridge box for sale ? I have seen one picture on the web.

The Type 11 hopper part that I am talking about having is at 1:44 in this video below. The exact Type 11 in this video and this part are actually mine now. GREAT seller to work with!
As far as condition of the spare parts. All are in good to excellent condition and the barrel was never a dewat. Bore looks excellent. Both spare bolts have their locking pieces. Hopefully this helps.
Thanks again for all of your help!
