How much should a nice condition Ishapore 2A1 in 7.62x51 go for in 2019?
last one I saw at Cabelas several months ago was $500ish
There's a guy selling one on gunboards right now for $400 + shipping
$400 is about it.
Be sure to post pics (and target pics) when you get one!
Clearly it’s worthless. I’ll take it off your hands for you- I’ll even do it free of charge
Are you looking for a ishapore or just enfields in general. Small shop near me has a few nice enfields. I think they are all under $500?
There's a 2A1 for sale a town over from me and I'm wondering if $550, their consignment price, is fair. Appears to be a little high.
If I where a collector and it was mint I might consider it , only 500k or so manufactured. Other than that I know nothing of Indian made guns. As for a shooter no way I would pay $500. I might top out at $375 IF I wanted a enfield built in India.
I'd agree it's a bit high. Two years ago when I was shopping Enfields (UK-made in 303, not Ishapore, but I encountered several of them), $350 or so was the going rate. By comparison, my 1942 Lee-Enfield ran me $420 in July 2017. Add a bit for market increase, and I don't think the Ishapore's at $550. I'd go closer to $425-$450 for a standard one, obviously condition and other factors will move the needle higher or lower from this baseline.
