    Itís Visaís money, not mine .
    I wonít be waiting years though, Iím afraid. Iíll just wing it if nothing definitive comes out of the woodwork. An auction starting at about $800 is sounding good to me.

    From my own point of view as a parts dealer at gun shows every weekend. What I see alone in sights you can recoup you investment. The bolt alone can bring 150.00 up. trigger group 80.00 up. Stock 100.00 up. It is a long hard sell to move the parts. Longer than selling the rifle at 2 to 3 times possibly more than what you go into it. With parts it is a one time sell to that person who needs that 1 part. Then you may not sell again for a year. Place the guns on the auction side with lots of good pictures set your starting price an let the gun gods go.

    Thatís spot on in line with what I got from the Winchester forum. One guy there suggests itís worth perhaps $1k.
    Iím thinking Iíll start an auction at $800 or $900 and see what happens. Iíll base what I do on the second one on how the first does.

    If they sell at $900, after fees I will have almost exactly doubled my money. Thatís hard to be upset about!

    Update:
    No movement on these even at $500. That was a bad purchase, haha. Oh well.
