Pat

There is a similar rig for sale in Virginia for a bit over $5k. Also supposed to have been saved by creative bin diving by an FBI agent.

$5k for original case with original parts box, original rod, shot mag, 3 patent mags, and numbered L drum, would be a deal. Provided all the items were in good condition. But what Pat described, I would guesstimate the following:

$1500-$2000 for the case
$750-$1000 for L Drum
$350-$400 for the mags
Parts box, if original then maybe $2K? Although with GH's for $275, that would be hard to justify.
Manual? part of the package
Repro rod? part of the package

So in the ballpark of $4K-$4.5K?

Art-it has a drum, tool roll, cleaning rod, and two pamphlets too.

I'm not selling it, just telling Pat where there is one for sale.

Pat-check your email. I sent the information to you.

Sniper,
Sorry. I thought that was the price for the case only. But without the parts box, and with a WWII drum, it would seem that $3k is more in the ballpark.

Original (?) no label case in so so condition= $1000 on good faith
Bridgeport Drum=$$750-$1000
WH Drum= $200
2 Repeat Date Mags= $170
2 Others= $80
Spare Parts Box Assuming Legit=$2K, Otherwise Zero

So maybe $2300 for package if box is repro, otherwise $3,800?
But since the contents of the case include post 1940 accessories, I wonder if the spare parts box is genuine?

A WH drum for $200! Things change so fast biggrin.gif (I bet WH's drop to $150 in nine months)

I would be very careful on the spare parts box. If you do not have any experience with one, it may be wise to have an expert take a look at it. Pictures may tell the story. It is a lot of money and reproductions are on the market.
