    Price for a M85

    Hello together,

    does anyone have an idea, with what price today a M85 is traded in the basic equipment? Good condition provided.

    Axel,
    If you can tell me a little bit about the rifle I am sure I can do that for you. Have you got the 00***F number please and the colour of the stock and whether it has a scope on it?

    Hello Gil,
    thanks again for your comments in the other thread. Here again the data:

    The serial no. is 00251F. The stock is still original (camouflage color). The two original magazines are included as well as the included accessories. Top maintained and shot a little. What unfortunately is lost with me, is the orignal transport packaging. As a glass, I have mounted the Springfield scope A.R.T. IV. But that really belongs my M1Aicon.

    It would me only interested.

    Axel

    Axel,
    Your M85 rifle was manufactured on the 10th March 1989 by Bill Smallwood at Parker Hale, no scope was ordered or fitted at the time of order.

    The rifle fired a 10.3mm Group @ 100 yards with 10 rounds.
    It was fitted to a Jungle Camouflaged McMillan stock and sold to Germanyicon with 7 other rifle in the same coloured stocks.
    Entry 227 Page 74 Cambridge Ledger Parker Hale Records.

    I would value the rifle less the scope at between £4500 and £5000 pounds here in the UKicon. This is typical at the moment, but with a Schmidt & Bender /Swarovski 6x42 numbered scopes fitted at the time of purchase you can add another £1000 to the price For your information. Incidently none of the 8 rifles ordered by Germany had scopes. The metal military cases were so durable that it is possible they were reused for the next generation rifle, and the reason why they were not sold with your rifle.
    If you look at an earlier thread last week on the M85 case I have attached the measurements should you find a case as shown in the picture there.

    Hope that helps

    Thanks Gil.
    with transport packaging, I mean the "paper box" from Parker Hale! For many years a military transport box was offered. Unfortunately, I was so stupid and did not buy it.

    Smile Price for a M85

    Guten Abend,
    Danke. Oh.. .

    Hatte angenommen, dass ein fremdsprachiger Text automatisch in die bevorzugte Forumsprache übersetzt würde.

    Weil mein Englisch hier wahrscheinlich noch nicht ausreichen wird.. . Möchte ja niemandem Arbeit zum Übersetzen machen.. .
    Ja, der Preis fürs M85 in dem Zustand neuwertig-sehr gut interessiert mich auch. Bereue es nun, dass ich es nicht bei einer Gelegenheit gekauft habe, vor vielen Jahren.

    Dankeschön.

    Gruss aus dem"Heidiland"

    Good evening,
    Thank you. Oh ...

    Had assumed that a foreign-language text would automatically translated into the preferred forum language.

    Because my English will probably not be enough here. Do not want to make anyone work translating ..
    Yes, the price for the M85 in the state as good as new-very well interested me too. Repent now that I did not buy it on one occasion, many years ago.

    Thank you very much.
