    Depends on how bad you want it. $500 is not out of the market of a Sesty M91 these days. I do see it is minus the handguard so 500 might be a bit high, but who knows these days on gunbroker for the same thing.

    Hello Gents,

    The rifle in the photos is most likely a later rebuild.

    While the stock shows what appears to be a "Deutsches Reich" cartouche stamped partially over the original rondel, the barrel is "JSE" marked in an oval, which is the inspection stamp of the Austro-Hungarian firm, Johann Springer, that inspected and converted captured enemy rifles during WWI.

    It's hard to make out in your photo, but the date in the rondel doesn't look like it is 1915?

    It doesn't appear that the barreled receiver is in it's original stock? With that said, as a WWI Collector I would pay $500 for it based on the nice overall condition of the rifle combined with "JSE" mark, which is not very common.

    Warmest regards,

    JPS

    It doesn't speak to me so $500 would be too much...
    Looking for USS Casimir Pulaski SSBN 633 items.

    This was the most interesting conversation I was ever not a part of and I look forward to the next conversation on the topic.

    Yo Bud!

    I most certainly respect your opinion and realize that not everyone is "WWI centric!" ........... But then I'm a charter member of the collector's organization entitled:

    "The Finns ARE Bubba!"

    So obviously my perspective is "tainted" relative to anything altered after WWI ended in 1920.

    Always a pleasure my Friend!

    I agree, especially if you want to add a Sestroryetsk to your collection. They don't show up so often and command a premium.
    And they have the coolest logo, to me.

    Five hundred is totally fair for that Sestroryetsk rebuild, certainly with that "JSE" stamped barrel. Handguard may be the only thing of concern to me. If sourcing one is not a problem, then price is very fair IMO.
