    Default Bannerman discussion

    LGS has a Bannerman 30.06 conversion done on a NEW receiver. Good shape. It's got some cool gee-whiz factor, but is there really any value to it aside from the fact that one doesn't see them every day (at least I don't). Thoughts? Ballpark valuations?

    If you don't have one yet, you should as long as it isn't a crazy price. No MN collection is complete without one.

    It is a commercial bubba with provenance. I would buy one at the right price. I am not so sure about shooting one.

    What's a crazy price? That's what I'm having a hard time tracking down (though googling led me to a fascinating A/B article by a guy named "Martin08.")

    This one still has its M91 sights and USA bomb stamps.

    I passed on a rough N.E.W. in 30-06 four or five years ago for 100 bucks....it was very much usuable, but well worn....Saw in person two or three Remingtons in 30-06 from 300.00 to 500.00 and passed on them as well. Still don't have a Bannerman in the collection and am not much in a hurry to add one.

    Pahtu.

    First off, is it a Bannerman that still looks like a M91, or is it one of the Bannerman sporters, that they cut the barrel, and stock and such?

    They are kinda neat, but really only way I'd have one would be for a good price, and I'd reload for it.

    If it's a sporter in very good condition as you stated, $350 maybe? Full stock examples are more. Beat up examples can be much less.

    I collect military rifles. Bannermans are not military. You have to draw the line somewhere. BUT were I a Mosin collector I would want one.

    Martin, I will start sending you the Mosin variations crafted by Bubba that I find. Your Mosin collection is incomplete without one or more of them.
