    No one who puts together on of these "tribute" guns ever 'plans' to sell it but somehow they always end up on the market. I have seen numerous M1903/1903A1 Springfield sniper rifles of various types come up for sale over the last several years after the genuine rifles started to sell for high documented prices. The M1903A1 rifles with USMC Unertl scopes are especially common. Some of the replica guns are very good. NONE of them were identified by the seller as non-original rifles. No matter what the builder's original intent was the end result is that original rifles are also questioned and the value of rare, genuine, pieces is potentially reduced. I spent a lot of time and effort over many years assembling a collection of real U.S. and Britishicon sniper rifles. These guns are valuable because they are original and rare.- Every time someone puts together a 'tribute" or 'clone' version of a rare gun it potentially impacts the value/collectability of original pieces.

    I said that in #4



    Also the only way fakers get onto the market is the "Someone" sells them and some have come on here after spending a good wad of hard earned cash only to find after the experienced people here point out the thing was a fake, I think in one instance the buyer got their money back. But what a heart rending thing as for some it is a one of purchase just to see it was a "Fosby flop"
