    1950 no4 mk1 Longbranch

    Hello, I have the chance to purchase a 1950 Long Branch in excellent unfired condition. He's asking $1850 for it. I just don't know, what do you see its value being roughly? Has the CA markings in all the correct places.

    Also if your a collector and can only afford to buy one Long Branch, which year would you collect 1943, 44, or 50?

    I really appreciate your knowledge and time

    -Brian

    The main denominator here is how much do you want it if your just going to plug away in comps and paper then a cheaper 2nd handy is the go because you are paying well above going rate for one your going to just shoot and once you start using it your going to lose half the value straight up but there is wiggle room on everything so haggle.
    I would want a very detailed look down the tube unless the things still in the wrap with only the serial No. exposed for licensing purposes there is never an unfired Lee enfield unless one was grabbed straight off the end of the line prior to proofing and sighting in. Its as post #2 states un-issued.

    UF wraps here go from between 2K-2.4K/Au, asking and getting are 2 different things low ball to say $1,200 and see what gives or take a wad of 100's in and go from there just depends on your desire to own it but your going to have to keep it for 10-15 years to get significantly more than what you end up getting it for.

    You're being fished in. It's typical of here in Canadaicon, where on CanadianGunNutz if that's where you shop, prices are astronomical. You don't have to pay that much. If you keep it for 20 years, you may get a return on funds but things here are so questionable you can't bet on it. This one is asking a premium because of the date of manufacture...6 groove barrel? Cut with the Bren machine to prove them during the gear up for the Korean conflict?

    You can get a good example for less. If you want a collector and want to pay...examine an early N4 Mk1. First production and early parts. They're artwork. Too, if you can't shoot a late rifle like a #4 what's the point? They're meant to be shot.



    Perhaps pics here would also help these guys to assess...form an opinion to help.
    Regards, Jim
