Thanks everyone for the responses so far! I'm awaiting more pictures being sent to me direct (I've only seen them on my buddy's phone).

Spoiler alert: based on my notes from seeing the original pictures, this is what I think the rest are:
  1. 3x, VZ24 Czech Mausers - one with "1924" on receiver and one with "BRNO" on receiver
  2. Swedish Gevarsfaktori G 33/50 Mauser
  3. Sporterized Arisaka
  4. H&R Shikari Rifle in 45/70, which appears to be in beautiful condition
  5. Alex Hoyer Custom Rifle in 7mm with Zeiss Zielvier scope
  6. Nylon 66 Apache Black Chrome, which appears to be in beautiful condition
  7. JC Higgins Semi Auto .22 - Not sure what model

Hopefully you all will be able to confirm/correct my thoughts as I get the pics.

Will keep updating as I receive them...

Second Rifle

I originally thought this was a VZ24 Mauser but I don't know for sure. After doing some digging, maybe its a Serbian Mauser?
















Confirmation/correction appreciated. I know value can vary greatly but any ballpark figures would also be appreciated.

Third Rifle

This one is the Swedish G33/50.

Looks to be in pretty good condition. Seems like these are less desirable than regular Swedish Mausers but I dont see a lot of them on auction sites to get pricing. The one I do see has a $700 starting price with no bids...

Yugoslavian M1924, either made by FN or under license at the factory at Kragujevac (check sidewall markings). The bolt handle doesn't look to be a 1924. It might be an Ottoman contract M1903 bolt. Check the markings to confirm. The 1924 bolts should have a crown acceptance mark. I'm not sure if the side mounted rear swivel makes it a different variant from the regular 1924 or of it was done later. Is there a patched spot on the bottom of the stock?

I've seen a few of those Interarms G33/50s move for around $500.

Would you mind posting or PMing the full SN of the M1903?

Lots of M1903s went to the USN and USMC in that SN range. It's a long shot but might be worth while.

I've got one that went to the carrier USS Saratoga and another that went to the USS California in the early 1 million range.

It looks like a much nicer collection than what you usually see when a non gun person has questions about guns that they inherited. It just seems so strange to me that someone's father would have a nice collection of rifles and yet they know nothing about them.

Swedish M/94-14 Carbine. Very popular. I've seen some heated bidding wars over these. One of the few Swedish Mausers I don't have in the arsenal. Last time I paid attention to one of these in an auction it went for $800 and I'd swag the condition was poorer than this one.

Dang... that IS a 94/14 Carbine, and a good one. Well worth over 1k to me.

It's one of the ones that Interarms scrubbed and marketed as the G33/50. They're not as desirable as an unmodified one.
