    I am looking for help identifying the rifles in the photos. I inherited these rifles from my uncle. I would also like to know a round about value of the rifles. From what I have heard about these, from left to right, first one Model 1903A3?, next two Model 1917 "Eddystone", next two Chinese 98?, next two British Enfield .303, next Russian 1903 Mozen-Negant?, next three Mauser (left one is German, other two I think Argentina), not sure of the next one, next two SKS (one w/blade bayonet, one w/spike bayonet), last one Springfield 1881 "Trapdoor" 45-70. By reading this it sounds like I already know what I have. I just want to be sure. If someone is close to me (Lincolnton NC), I would be willing to bring them to you to have a closer inspection. 20210911_154630.jpg 20210911_154653.jpg 20210911_154702.jpg 20210911_154715.jpg 20210911_154726.jpg 20210911_154749.jpg

    The one with the spike bayonet folding to the side (before the 2 SKS's) is a Mosin Nagant. At 7.62x54r.net you can lookup various receiver marks and stock types which will help in determining which type Mosin Nagant it is (M44 ot Type 53) . Prices on Mosins seem to be all over the place ranging from $250-$350 to $500-$600 depending on overall condition.

    The longest rifle in the middle appears to be a Finnish M91 Mosin Nagant. Judging by the rear sight, sling hangers and the two-piece finger spliced stock. The Finnish Mosins usually bring more $$$ but thats also highly dependent on the barrel and receiver markings. There should be a letter stamped on top of the barrel. “B” stamped barrels are generally pretty rare.

    Yep. Appears to be a Century import M91 Finnish capture rifle. “D” marked barrel. Appears to be somewhat of an early model. Im far from an expert on these but I know just enough to be dangerous haha. Nice gun for sure. The 7.62 Russian stamp on the barrel is simply the importer marking the caliber, or 7.62x54r

    If that's a Finn capture there should be a *SA* on the barrel shank and a splice in the stock professionally done

    I do have a few more from the collection that I have not posted yet. Here are a few pistols that are in the collection. One that is not pictured is an Govt. issued Colt 1911 .45 ACP manufactured in 1944.

    Seriously nice stuff. Take care of them and enjoy them. Get an insurance policy also.

    I am planning on selling most of the firearms. There are a few I am going to keep, to pass down to my kids. If anyone is interested, send me a message and I can send photos. I am looking for fair, reasonable offers, or possible trades. I have a book to look up the values, so I do have a general idea of what each one is worth.

    A little late on this thread. The forth from the right seems to be a Mosin .22 trainer. I have one too (1954) spiffy!
