    Jaxson: For potential value you could check the IMA site and see what they are charging for their "untouched" Nepal Snider type rifle. The parts, in general, can't be assumed to work in Britishicon Sniders or maybe even other Nepali Sniders. It is worth something as IMA sells a lot of these and (some) people actually shoot them.

    It is in my opinion in poor condition, considering there is considerable rust on the metal, the furniture is in bad condition and there is a twisty tie replacing at least one part.
    But that’s just my observation.

    I finally got time to spend checking this rifle out, after cleaning a Mk IV Long Branch, a Siamese Mauser a Frenchicon Brerthier, a Carcano Manlicher and a shotgun for the old guy who needs to sell these,
    In all I cleaned 80 rifles, carbines and shotguns and one Enfield 38 revolver, one Nambu revolver and one Nambu auto.
    And the Napal Snider, which is in sorry shape. The breach will not open to allow a detailed inspection, I carefully cleaned out the bore, but with out being a gunsmith with proper tools I am not going to put time into cleaning rotted wood and rust of the metal.
    Maybe it's worth that to someone else.
    As of now I have 2 Ross Canadianicon rifles with bayonet,
    2 1873 Springfield with bayonets, two 1898s 30 40s with bayonets
    A Steyr M96 w/bayonet two Swissicon straight pulls,
    A few Martini Henry's and two Carcanos, numerous Mausers and 1903s on 1903A3 and one absolutely original WEI
    Germanicon Mauser, two French MAS 36, and I know I'm missing some.
    I have cleaned these in 4 weeks as started just two weeks after hand surgery.
    So, I've had it!
