    Default Q: serial number and value

    I've got a model 1900 m/96 Swedish Mauser in great shape, all parts matching with "000". High serial number "xx000". Besides it's overall condition, would this unique SN make it any more valuable?

    I would pay for condition absolutely but probably not serial number range.

    No, condition is primary.

    I have a 1899 Obendorf with number 25,476 and a 1906 with #199,224. So see nothing unusual about your number.

    Thanks for the quick replies gents. looks like a Oberndorf 1900 M96 in good condition is selling in the $450-500.00 range?

    Maybe, depends on condition and what a willing buyer wants to pay.

    I do not track the m96's as closely as others but it entirely depends on condition, pictures, and presentation.

    I have seen them sell in the last few months ranging from $300 to $800. $800 is near pristine unissued matching numbers, and some people with money falling out of their pockets. The $300 one was VERY nice, no issues at all, just some honest wear. I wasn't able to buy it at the time, otherwise I would have snapped it up. I would say $450-$500 is the VERY top for a "good" condition rifle. A good condition rifle to me is more along the lines of $350.
