your rifle is something a collector would want to buy, probably not to shoot but leave wrapped. I would try gunboards for the sale or gunbroker.I doubt you will find a buyer willing to pay top dollar on this website outside of a few people I can think of. That said its very nice and I would love to have one. Remember, once you sell one like that its gone and no more are coming. I would hold onto it and save for whatever else you are trying to buy

just looked on gunbroker, past 90 days looks like only one has sold it went for 750.00 was taken out of the wrap two years ago and had 60 rounds through it. There are a few others that never got any bids that started around 1000. So I think the upper limit on this would be around 800-900. Id still keep it.

Don't unwrap it. Go over to an Enfield site an sell it.
http://forums.gunboards.com/forumdis...-Enfield-Forum

Sell here:
http://forums.gunboards.com/forumdis...-listing-board

Not to be an ass, I'd pay $400. As I know what they sold for and I'm cheap. You can get $800 fast or list it for $900 and wait for a buyer. Highest I've seen one sell for was $1,150 at a show.

Out of the wrap it's just an old clean rifle, $400 tops. I hit the big shows and have been collecting Enfields heavy for 40 years. $1500 I'll start selling my unwrapped $150 (1996 prices) specials.

Wonder what those old nasty "T" rifles will bring

If you say you'll buy it do they at least offer you a fan belt to bite on during the ass-raping?

Thanks to Grand1957's pictures I now know what the mystery wrapped bayonet I had in the safe fits. Thanks again for all the information and leads.
