    It may still be real, but it's just as likely also a fake. Certainly I would be really worried about spending 6700 on it. DEFINITELY hesitant when coupled that lack of a legit XP serial number!!!
    Lance also mentioned that "The Aussie No.6 looks suspicious, the sold out of service mark on the reciever is unusual for after WWII sales."

    How about this for the Mauser collector…

    RARE GERMAN VG 2 LAST DITCH BOLT ACTION RIFLE. SN 2134A. Cal. 8MM. Bolt action rifle that uses a 10 rnd G43 mag. It has a 21" bbl with no bayonet lug and was cheaply built at the end of the war made out of a singly U shaped stamping. This example has the mfg. code CYQ which is spreewerk. This is a seldom found rifle in any condition. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Condition is fairly good with approx 80% of orig finish showing but with pin prick pitting throughout. Bbl assembly is blued except for the front 4" retains about 75% of its finish with a significant amount of spotting throughout. Trigger guard assembly and mag catch has a small amount of surface rust that should clean to show better. Front hand guard assembly is in good shape with no major scarring and retains better than 90% of its oil finish. Buttstock assembly shows very good also with some very minor bruising. Buttplate is in good condition with patina on it and cups over back of stock. Mechanics are in need of work as the action works, but firing pin assembly accuates with the bolt. Bore is bright and shiny and appears to be virtually unfired though counter bored approx 1 1/2" from muzzle. This is an extremely rare piece and with my 40 plus years in guns, this is only the second that I have seen. Sling is good with one small gouge in it approx 5" behind the front swivel. 4-33960 BK66 (4,000-5,000)


    Sold for $18,400 U.S.

    Price includes auction house Buyer's Premium of 15-17%

    …… and another one for the Mauser collector…

    GERMAN VG5 C. SN 7538. Cal. 7.92 X 32 cartridge. This is the crudely made German semi-auto rifle that was mfg during the late war after the raids from the eighth air force pretty much destroyed the German capability of mfg firearms. This is one of the last examples of Germanyicon getting driven back in time. Rifle is complete with canvas sling and mag and in working order. These are very rare as most of the GI's brought home German guns that were finely made instead of these. A fine exotic piece for the advanced axis collector. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: As good as it ever was. Spot welded receiver with no finish and assembled basic block pieces of wood, with the serial number stamped into the buttstock. 4-33961 BK25 (12,000-15,000)


    Sold for $31,050 U.S.

    Price includes auction house Buyer's Premium of 15-17%

    Regards,
    Badger

    I only got prices for the ones that surrounded the times I was on-line for phone bids.

    I've got the final price catalogs on order, so when they arrive and if you haven't got an answer from elsewhere, remind me and I'll look it up for you...

    The Piat's sold for between $3-4k (did not write it down) in a nice Greek transit chest. I would of like one but did not/could not afford the whole lot.

    Sat beside a great guy from Mississippi who I helped convinced to buy the Dealer Sample Bren Mk I for $15K (hey it is not my $$) and helped him bid on one of the Germanicon last ditch semi-auto's (sorry cannot remember which, not my area) but he bailed at $25K. Quality on most items were very good but the 15% premium killed me thus, in great saddness, I came home without a prize. I regret 2 pieces that I should of bid past my max but auctions madness is intoxicating so I can make myself feel a little better by saying I had will power.

    Of interest is that a few of the No.4 T's were screwed with, by whom no one knows but some bidders got burnt. Some bidders ended up with some treasures and I had to laugh as 2 Britishicon scopes from the auction are now on epay.

    If the scopes are there, one has to wonder how long before the rest of the guns are here as well, minus the receivers

    I can't say as to the WW1 scope that is on ebay, but the WW2 scope is a #42. Of course, the seller makes great claims as to the provenance and useage (ie "commando 22 snipers"), while also claiming that he doesn't know anything about these things.

    Punch in "enfield" and "sniper" and you'll see the two of them.

    For you serious Britishicon collectors ……

    British Godsal’s Patent, Manufactured by Webley & Scott in October of 1902, Bolt Action Rifle. Cal. 303. S# 22003 on bolt. Overall condition is good. Bore is bright and shiny. This rifle appears to have been the beginning of the bullpup frenzy. Rifle has a very short buttstock with a very long front end and has the trigger directly below the front ring of the receiver with the bolt and magazine behind the trigger. Rifle shows approx. 95% of the original blue with slight scattered corrosion throughout. Buttstock and hand guard are good with only light scuffing. A very unique British rifle, ahead of it’s time. (07-2360 / BK / BS) Curio. Est. $ 900 – 1500


    Sold for $16,250 U.S.

    Price DOES NOT include auction house Buyer's Premium of 15-17%

    Regards,
    Badger
